There is a local car for sale that I'm considering. I really want a BMW and I have no high performance expectations. That is what my Mustang is for. I think this car would be a nice fit because I'm just looking for a nice car to cruise in with all the amenities. The car has less than 60k miles supposedly and needs brakes and AC work.

I know I haven't provided much detail about the car but can anyone tell me things that should make me walk away? Specifically, what to look for that cost big money to fix. Things that could be wrong but I can't tell by looking. I do not see many of these older 7 cars and I suspect there is a good reason. The car seems to be a good deal but I don't want something that is going to cost many times the cost of the car to put right. Thank you in advance.
