New BMW

Hi Guys I am new here and to BMWs all together. I am getting ready to pick up a 2000 328ci. I paid 5k for it. It has about 123000 on it and has a decent dent in the rear quarter but other than that it runs and looks great I was just wondering if there were any problems that these things are notorious for that I should watch out for? Thanks for the help

Welcome to the site! Any plan for mods, or will you just be cleaning up the exterior?

I might get a new hood but not alot planned for exterior besides fixing what is wrong. I am more of an interior and performance guy. I did have one question, the driver side mirror is broken and I want to replace it, I searched eBay and they have two mirrors that are exactly the same in the description but 150$ difference in price, Why would that be???
