Hello,
I'm planning to buy the car listed above. When I went to check I had opened the engine oil cap when running and the oil was popping out little, is it any bad for the car? Please advise me what to check before getting that car? Also the maintenance, is it too much? Can you tell me an approximate range how much the maintenance will be?

Good morning,

That is normal when you remove the oil fill cap with it running.

I would have the car certified by a BMW dealer as they know the car best of anyone. They will give you a list of suggestions for you.

As far as maintenance, you will be spending around $1,500.00 to $2,000.00 per year to keep up with the required maintenance recommended by the manufacturer.
