service history is the key, make sure it has a BMW stamped one and it's up to date with all it's oil services and Inspections. If the receipts/bills are with it describing whats been done, then mores the better.
Body should still be in good shape, no rust should be present, basically check over as per a 'normal' car, but concentrate on the engine and suspension.
Rear suspension top mounts go, so I trust these and possibly the shocks have been replaced.
