1998 E36 318i SE - advice?

Hi all,
I'm looking at buying an E36 318i SE and would like some advice. It's a 1998 R with 102k miles and has been owned by my father for the last
year.
I'm going to be paying 2,700 for it - sound fair?
Any thing I should be looking out for?
Cheers in advance.
Rob

The only question you need to answer for yourself is, do you trust your dad?

Just because this sounds amusing to me. Let's take a look.
He's asking his son to pay: $4729.32
Kelly Blue book Value is:
Condition Trade in Value Excellent $5,125
Good      $4,620          Fair      $3,750
Private Party Value Condition Excellent      $7,290          Good      $6,685          Fair      $5,890
Hmm.. Why not buy it from a stranger? They have 5 series selling for 6000.00 in mint condition. Or even better yet, why doesn't he just give you the car. If you were going to give away something in your life, would it not be to your son?
I don't get families today. Even the Kennedy's figured that one out. And they were drunk half the time.
