you are asking for opinions here, mine is NO. But then again I wouldn't buy a 2014 BMW for 20% of dealer invoice.

Depends on price, my ability to get repairs and my ability to handle such repairs in future. Vehicle probably not well maintained so more issues await.

repair costs were my issue whether used or new.

Those issues are all DIY-able. How many miles and how is the rest of the vehicle? It is already 9 years old. Even if you pay someone to do all that stuff, $1550 isn't that bad as long as the shop is trustworthy and they do a good job. Some shops are crap and will break things while trying to fix others. Get other quotes and opinions on shops first if you won't DIY.
