Default Hello everyone

Hello to all of you,
I am a new member of this community, and besides coming to greet anyone reading this I also have a concrete agenda: I am right now searching for a new car, my first car, and I'm thoroughly browsing through used cars in my country (I hail from Poland), and I was hoping to maybe get some assistance from more veteran drivers and generally people that have deeper knowledge on cars.

Is there a forum board that focuses on this kind of thing? I took a gander and didn't find it if it's there. If there is a more proper place to do this I'll gladly move into there.

Anyways, I have looked into a short guide that explains some basic thinks to look out for when buying a used car (from checking if the oil smells like gasoline, to plugging out the spark plugs to do a very rudimentary check on the compression of the cilinders*), I have looked for good cars for beginners, I got some mixed results on that, and most importantly I have found a bargain that surprised me quite a bit and that as much as I find a bit fishy I'd really like it to be true, and hence I'd like your opinion on it:

I have found a BMW series 3 E36 for 1700 PLN (430$):
Year 1995, 165k Km (100k miles), no scratches, paint coat in good state, no visible rust on the lower part of the chasis, no cracked windows nor headlights, no visible rust on the engine, no visible rust on the exhaust, the picture of the engine doesn't show the radiator, possible cracked plastic.

This seems too good to be true, and I wanted to ask your opinion, any help is appreciated, if anyone wants to I can post the link to the ad, it's on a known website were you can sell used cars.

I'm sorry not knowing I can not comment on the car. But I can on purchasing. If you are new to this and unsure take some one very knowledgable with you or take the car to them. Even if it cost you it is much better than getting taken
