A car wit almost 300k miles on it, no matter how well it has been maintained, still a big risk. Unless, of course there is physical proof of engine, suspension, cooling system AND transmission rebuilds, *at least* 100k miles ago. The price seems high to me for a car that mileage if no records.
Take it to a local BMW shop and have them run a PPI w/compression tests etc.
