Torn between decisions

I'm torn between a couple decisions. Both are 535i 5 speeds.

First is the car described in the link above.

Second is I found another 535i 1989 with 144k miles) in Seattle area for 2800 OBO.

Cons with the one in Seattle:
- will need new control arms in the front
- new fan clutch (Owner says the current one is "seized" but fan still turns)
- potentially need to be repainted
- water pump and timing chain condition is unknown

The engine bay however is very clean:

Or third I can keep searching.
