Question 1997 e36 M3 Bad Vanos System?

Hey im looking to buy another BMW M3 and i was looking at this 1997 m3 and im 99% certain that the Vanos system is bad. The question im working about is could this be signs that the engine on this car has been abused or that possibly non-synthetic oil was used? It would be great if someone who know alot about this car could help me out thanks! oh, by the way the car has pretty high miles, 171,000 and the dealer is asking 4999 for it. Let me know what you guys think thanks!
