If you like the car, it's a fair price. Be sure you carefully evaluate the condition, one rust spot doesn't tell the whole story. Look it over, top to bottom, look for undercarraige rust and corrosion, drive it, listen to it and expect to do some repairs and maintenance. E28's are good cars but any car that's 26 years old is likely to have some problems. That said, parts are easily obtainable and they're not difficult to work on. Good luck.

The brakes are easy to work on. I'd rebuild all the calipers and replace all the hoses at the very least. Having a parts car can be very useful, provided you have the space. Get yourself a Bentley's repair manual, it will provide you with most of the info you need.
