Considering buying 2008 - 535xi

Im considering buying a used 2008 - 535xi. The body and interior are in impeccable shape. It has 148k miles and the seller has it priced for 3900. I thought this was a good deal. He says the only problem is the valve cover gasket will need to be changed - there is evidence of having had oil on the engine, Also, the timing belt has not yet been done. I have a 2001 525i that I am replacing the hood and fender from a minor crash. My friend is going to do it for me cheap and we just found all the parts. I know the newer 535xi is much nicer, but does this sound like more trouble than its worth?.....or is this pretty standard problem and the model will likely not have any more haunting, expensive issues. Let me know your thoughts!!
