Rear sway or shimmy in 2002 325i

I'm considering buying a used 2002 325. When I drove the car, it felt like the rear end smimmy'd as you drove down the road. As I'm a potentially new BMW owner, I was wondering it others had this experience. The car is awesome with 32k miles.

Thanks!!

Has clean Carfax report. Owner says he knows of nothing that happened to car. But also thought that car was front wheel drive too, so I really don't know about him. CB
