    It's just out of warranty so just make sure there's no really bad rattles or plumes of black smoke.

    These engines go on and on and on and on and on.

    yes thats for the glow plugs...and i asked the dealer if you need to wait till the glow plug light goes out and he said no as its some sort of direct injection...(Load of b@ll@cks) always try to wait till they go out, should not be a problem now as weather is picking up but cold weather they will be on more...diesel has a higher flash point than petrol and the glow plugs aid in the warm up.
    also look out for squeeky hand break, check by standing on driver sides passenger door sill and bounce the car up and down.
