Welcome to the E30 World, c10seth; one thing yo should always do when getting a car with a timing belt... unless the former owner has a receipt for a recently replaced timing belt... replace it. If it weren't for the timing belt there would be 10X the E30's on the road today. A broken timing belt will frag the engine, big time... figure rebuilding it with new pistons, check or replace the connecting rods, clean & magniflux the head for cracks (removal in the tightening sequence loosening each head bolt 5 fl/lbs at a time), new valves, rocker arms, and shafts.. if you haven't replaced the timing belt, do it now.. we want you and your nice clean machine around a while.
