1980 BMW 320i, is this a good price?

Hey, guys new to this site. First off I've been looking for a nice Bimmer for 6-8 months now and I think I found the right car(Link down below). This will be my first car and I've done some research, but still unsure. It's seems to be in really good shape for the age and only 116k miles and it seems to check out mechanical. The guy is asking $2500 and I haven't really seen any 320i in my area for sale but from what I've seen them go for is $1200-$1800, would I be over paying? If so what should I offer him?

Well there was some spots of rust here and there, but not to much that it couldn't be sanded or buffed out. And as far as I know it looked like a solid engine. The only thing was the brakes were soft.

If the BMW is in a very good condition then there is not harm in buying it. Just take a test drive of this bmw occasion to see that it rides well and all its parts are intact. And as for the money I think $2500 for a used car is a bit more, so I suggest you negotiate the price with the owner and pay about $1900 for this car.

I paid 2500 for my 79 320i sport package LSD recaros with 52,000 original. The only
Problem I had with it is that it was grey market . (Imported ) but with all the US safety standard and fed emissions . Had it shipped from Colorado where it was registered and when Cali DMV looked up the vin all he'll broke loose just got the plates on it yesterday after 7 months of dealing with u name it. Turns out the chp inspection made a mistake and checked a box on the form that said no visible emission badges when it did. Anyways look up the vin and make sure it's all good. Specially if your going to take it out of state.
