Well i bought that rebuilt 96 318i. So far so good. Handles well, and is pretty quick. One issue that I noticed that was not there during the test drive: while sitting at idle just after coming to a stop, the motor surges from about 900rpm to 1300 , and back. It does this almost every time i come to a stop, then it stops after maybe 10 surges. The surges are quick almost as if I was blipping the throttle. Happens cold and op temp.
