I am thinking about buying 94 318i, $1995, good price I think. But I am concerned about the vibration when applying the brake. Any thoughts.

I have a few thoughts. With 198800 miles on the car I would ask the owner what kind of front suspension work has been done on it and if he knows, it sounds to me like warped front rotors, which will amplify worn-out front suspension parts, and if not corrected, it will most definitely overstress all of your front suspension parts,
good luck.

I agree and the inspection of the lower control arm bushing and their possible replacement is going to be needed.
