Friend is thinking about buying this car. What should he look for?

'94 530iT

I am running a 92 535i with 158k to date and try to keep it 100%
At that milrage I would look for prrof that the following had been changed at some point in history. Tyres, shockers all round, including rear top mounts, discs, rear sub bushes. If M30 engine basically solid design watch the cylinder head as known for head cracking and strange cooling problems.
