New Gal Needs Help!

Hi All ---

My name is Louisa. This is my first post here. I am thinking of buying a used BMW. Have never had an European car, always owned American or Japanese.
I want an automatic mid-sized car that is safe with good braking and road handling, that will last a long time.
Would like to know if this is a good deal or a rip-off. It is a private owner sale. Also need to get a Carfax report to help me decide. Have to make a quick decision, or may lose out.

The car I fell in love with and want to get is a 2001 525i.
The asking price is $9,000.
The owner ran over a parking curb and tore up the underside (engine and trans). No body damage at all. It's clean - no dents, dings, etc. Has leather interior, sun roof, CD player, automatic everything, all the bells and whistles. I believe, no sports package.
Odometer - 91,000 miles
The following repairs has just been completed....
Motor - with 51,000 miles
Trans - with 6,000 miles
SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK? Thanks in advance.
