hey im new, need help!

hey guys im new to the bmw thing here, im looking at getting a 94 bmw 318i 5speed because gas it too much, love the car but it has high km's 275000, is that pushing it for the 4cyl engine? are they reliable around there? im scared to buy it only for it to be full of issues, it seems to run pretty nice the idle dropps every now and then though.

if it had a total history, and looked like it had been loved it might be a good buy at a reasonable price. By reasonable I mean cheap and very cheap

Hi mate sounds a bit high mileage wise maybe if it were a bigger engine with full history, but would still be wary.
