First bimmer, need advice

Hey guys,

I was looking for a fun, 2nd car that is reliable and fun to drive and came across a very clean, '90 535i with a manual shift. It's in very good condition with close to 100,000 miles. Is there any specific trouble spots I should look for when looking at this car? Are they worth the money? About what price range would this be at?

How much are they charging? Sounds like a decent example. Maintenance records?

I'm checking on the maintenance records, but it is perfectly clean inside and out. No problems whatsoever. Right now, it's looking like they may want $3,000 for it.
