Thinking of purchasing a 2001 BMW 325i with 220k miles on it. The guy describes it as excellent and looks to be taken care of. For less than 2k is that worth it? Or will there be problems real soon?

With 220K miles, there will be maintenance costs and failures. $2K is a decent purchase cost, but pretty soon you will be up to 10K in a hurry. Find something newer and less miles and get a PPI.
