I took my 88 M to my mechanic almost as far as what you want to travel without the dealer baulking.
If he refuses then I'd look else where. Seems that you already have a funny feeling about this. I'd go with your gut.
If he will not let you have the car checked out then he's hiding something.
BTW, I paid 12 for my 88 but it was in near mint condition, with a flawless motor. All of the underbody aerodynamic valances front and rear were still intack! I got luck, and so could you. Just be patient and shop around.
