Some one please help me!!!

Okay, first off I'm 19, as my father says the perfect age for stupid, so I am just beginning getting real world experience so pardon me if I sound naive in any of my post. My best friend's dad's friend (wow, I sound like I'm in "CLUELESS") Has A 97 740il that has very very light front end damage, bumper-L/R energy absorber-Left headlight and fender, and a 00-01 750il Protection with no damage. He bought them both new and now he is selling the 740il for $1500 plus a free entire front to fix any underlining suspension damage. I'm young but I know a deal when I see one. The 750il is going for $5000 and it has an additional $40,000 to $70,000 of Bulletproofing from Texas Armoring Corporation, He works for the Gov. and that's all I can/will say. Also the 740il has a medium armor protection installed.
I am in college right now and my budget is really tight because my father only gave me $40,000 for my 4 years + Med-School, Then he went all Tim Gunn on me and said "Make it work". If I get the 740il I can go on the "air" diet for a month or if I go for the 750il have to miss a semester or two to break even. Basically what should I do? FYI I hate riding in my friends barley alive 1984 Ford Escort so I really need a car.

Skipping semesters is never a smart idea. I would pass on both. Late 90s and early 2000s 7 Series are notorious for mechanical problems. Get yourself a decent japanese product from the mid-2000s and you should be set for your four years of school.

Buy a civic, I can't believe you'd even consider missing school or not eating just to drive an old BMW.
