    Its the cheapest on Auto Trader at the mo,
    But abit leggy. People get worried when a car has done over 100.000miles,
    but as you say if it's been looked after it will fine.
    The Turbo could cost you a bit if that gives up the ghost, but take someone with you, have a long test drive, check the warrenty properly,
    then knock them down. Never pay the screen price 3 grand max.
    If you are willing to wait you will find one with lower miles, but you will have to do abit of leg work yourself.

    People (as shown above) can't see past a mileage of +100k.

    The mileage itself wouldn't bother me. The car could be in excellent condition with a fully stamped service book and many new parts. I'd sooner have that than a car with 60k miles and a more patchy past.

    Get them down a bit on the price, check it over carefully and budget for a turbo. It also mentions a years warranty, which should offer some piece of mind.
