Smile Need help with my AC!! compressor?

I am interested in buying a 96' 328i I found. The only problem with the car is the AC.
While test driving, the Heater would come on randomly. He didnt know why, he said it might be a relay. Also, the AC was not working at all so im not sure what it is. I think he mentioned that the compressor might have blown. Let me know what I should do and how to fix these problems.

Im in cali so it will get hot with the black leather.

I also need to know where to buy good new parts if I need them. Thanks.

heater and a/c not working correctly - i would start by checking all fuses to see if they are in order(front and reas fuse carriers); then probe the dashboard climate control. If that checks out, then u have two separate issues.

For parts, we have site support vendors. I have used them for sourcing out my parts and they've never let me down
