It is a used BMW which means lots of potential expensive repairs in it's future. I would avoid and get something reliable.

Bob is right. A used BMW can be a nice car to own, but only if you worked on vehicles as a hobby,(DIY) I would say go for it. But since you know nothing about them, I would avoid it.

A twelve year old BMW can and probably will get expensive to own very quickly! If this was going to be a second car or a "toy" I'd say pursue it. But $7,000 seems steep to me for a 12 year old car. Even a BMW! HTH. -Jim
