Yes, that's about right for a 97 with those miles and apparent options. Looks like a bunch has been addressed, but I'd have questions about the suspension and certainly take a look at the rear shock mounts. There's almost no way the cooling system is original, but I'd check just in case.

It being a 4-door is really a shame.

I love a four-door. Because of the convertible thing, I'm stuck with a coupe body style.

The four door E36 bodystyle just doesn't work for me. And they all have the wrong (lux/sedan) seats. And the pinched taillights.

I get that they're more practical and the more logical choice, but no.
