Exclamation Need Help

Hey everyone, I'm looking to buy this one guys 1995 BMW 530, i test drove one and everything was good except 1 thing. I felt a clicking/clunking noise coming from the rear passenger side wheel when leaving a full stop in 1st gear only. The owner assured me its just a wheel bearing but one of my friends who is a mechanic told me that its unlikely that would be the cause of the sound. Anyone have any insight as to what might be the problem? I really like the car but i dont wanna inherit a big problem. Thanks very much i appreciate anything you guys have to offer.

Wheel bearing could be a possibility, also check your suspension arm bushings...
