Buying a 535i w/ a dead motor.

Hi guys, I'm new to bimmers and I was wondering if you guys could help me out deciding wether to buy this car I found in my local craigslist.

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/13 57492955.html

Please let me know what you guys think, is it worth it?

BTW, I would not be paying for it, I would be trading my Used MacBook Pro 15" for the car.

How feasible is this swap for a first time bimmer person? I have done Japanese imports, and American muscle, how much more work to do one of these swaps?

Craigslist page is gone. I'd need to know WHY it doesn't run first. If it's been abused and neglected (very likely) then it could turn into a money pit stupid fast. I'd say bide your time and get a runner.
