Look at the relevant honest john review, specifically 'good and bad'. There seem to be plenty goes wrong with that age of 3 series, but specifically relating to that model there seems to be plenty of reports about ignition pack and coil failure.

It would help if you posted a link to the specific car you are looking at, so members can see the car and check the mot history.

Does it have to be a 3 series?

Prone to timing chain issues, these are very oil specific engines. Aftermarket suspension components also ruin the handling and ride. Buy only with a full BMW history with proof of annual oil changes and buy only if you're willing and able to continue this with a main dealer or genuine BMW specialist. Otherwise leave well alone. These are not reliable cars if neglected or poorly maintained. Post a link to the advert if you can. But generally I'd warn you off BMW. I've had nothing but bother with any I've owned or sold.
