Thumbs up 2000 323ci

So I have my eye on a 2000 323ci red 2dr with 93k miles on it the asking price is 10,450 which is way to high imo. I'm going to day to look at it what should I be looking for and what is a reasonable price?

What is the deal with these engines anyways how do they last I know It is coming up on 100k miles so would that mean a timing chain / water pump / other cooling opponents need to be changed? That is of course if they hadn't already been changed which I am going to ask for a detailed note on the mechanic work done to the car...

Thanks for you time!

KBB says in good condition (90+% of cars out there) it's around 6800. Excellent is SHOWROOM condition (less than 1% of cars out there) and it's only 7400. They're way high especially in this economy. I wouldn't offer more than 5500 and haggle a bit provided everything else is in order. Be prepared to walk away and keep looking, you might just get it at a good price.
