As a fellow with the same car, except that mine's a four door automatic, I say DOO IT! I wish I could've gotten a deal that sweet on my car. I paid four large for mine. They are excellent, reliable automobiles, and with a 5 speed, even pretty quick. Don't worry about your fuel economy. See that 4500rpm redline? As long as you aren't cranking her up there too much, you'll get the same mileage as a large four cylinder car.
280,000kms isn't anything, providing it's been well serviced. Does she have records? And what has been done recently? Timing Belt (goes every 5 years or 90,000kms, and if it breaks on you, your valves and pistons are toast. Very expensive job.) is a very important part of your car's well being.
In short, if you like how she drives, go for it! They are real fun rides, and if you're worried about everyone with 325i beating you at lights, drop a new EPROM chip in the Motronic box, good for about 25-40hp depending on chip make, if you wanna shell out for 89+ octane fuel.
It'll be fun. Trust me.

Whoops. Yeah, its actually about 20hp, 25lb ft, average. Sorry bout that. :P Mind you, couple the chip with a K&N Intake, and what would you get?
