what major problems are with 318i e36?

hey guys n girls, im looking at buying a 1996 318i e36 manual with 300,000 kms on the clock.

ive been told by a few people that they fall apart and cost heaps to fix.

the price of the car is only $5000

is it worth it?

the owner says it will be sold with a roadworthy but im worried that things will go wrong since its around the 300 000km mark

any help would be appreciated

that's way too much money for that car, I just bought this car, a 2002 325 sport Coupe with 54,000 miles on the clock, for 5000. I don't know what the exchange rate is about $5000 cannot possibly be anything like what the car is worth.
