Buying an Alpina B10 3.2 help needed.

Hi,
last winter I totalled my 528 and am looking into buying a new BMW. Since I live in Poland there're not many of them around but managed to spot a B10 3.2 on here
Pictures.
. It has around 200 000 km and was slightly dented from behind but is all fixed now (bumper and the hatch). It has a service book with all the service done at Alpina up to until around 175 000 kms and looks generally in good shape. He upgraded the headlights to the angel eyes, rear lights and put in a GPS unit (new ones 16x9). I managed to get the price down to 56000 zl which is approx 13650 euro or 9200 pounds. Is it a good deal?
I was wondering if you could tell me what're the things that I should look out for when buying one of these. Do they have a high oil consumption like the 3.3s? The guy told me that it uses approx 2.5l every 10000 kms. Also what're they like for getting parts. I know that the front shocks are different from the standard BMW ones. What about the breaks ( the front pads are same as in 540 and rear as in 528 but what about the discs)? What're the things that're most likely to go wrong with them, and which ones of them I can't get off the shelf at the BMW dealership and how much would they cost me in Germany (I'd just get them shipped). Thanks for your help guy.
Regards,
Raphael
