88 e32 5spd

Hello everyone! I am a former e30 owner and I have owned an e34 also. I now have an opportunity to buy a 1988 735i e32. It's been sitting for at least 5 years without once being started. The guy told me to make an offer. I don't know the guy well but he seems to be a really nice guy who has this beast buried in his garage. It's not running of course, has a minor ding on the rear driver side..the interior could use some TLC but it's in pretty decent shape from that I can tell.
I need help trying to price this car and and more importantly, I need to best figure out what's wrong with it and estimate the cost to get it back on the road. Can anyone give me some suggestions as to how to go about this? It's a manual by the way. I am a noobie when it comes to BMW but i am willing to get my hands dirty (not trying to pay someone else if possible) I am also on a budget but don't want to miss out on getting this car. I could use a simple check list. Should I buy a battery and see if it starts...do I change all fluids first? Not sure where to start.
