Question Any Advice?

So I am thinking of getting a 1996 328i that was involved in a front-end collision for a "project car." The guy wants $1,600.00 for it and at minimum it needs the following repairs: new bumper, fender, radiator, grill, headlight assembly, strut, wheel, etc. The damage is only to the front passenger corner. The car has ~125k and is supposedly a single owner car. Has anyone on here ever attempted a salvage car? What is the life expectancy on the 328i engine? (it's an automatic) This would be to fix up in my spare time and maybe do some nice mods to (I already have a 1999 323i daily driver).
