    Quite difficult to comment without seeing the car in question but personally the mileage is too high for me.

    I'm just thinking the stress the Z20let is at, 111k is alot. It took me quite a while to find mine but it was well worth it.

    the price reflects the milage i paid nearly 9000 for mine 53 plate milage a lot lower. would not even consider it but believe me it will be worth the wait

    mines is on 82000 miles now and uses no oil and turbo boosts perfectly imo as long as the service history is correct ? and you could get a decent warrenty with the car it might turn out a good buy at 4200 i paid 8 grand for mines a year and ahalf ago

    my 05 plate is on 114k, still nice and tight with no annoying rattles. Slightl oil consumption since I had a piston fail at 82k and sure she will get me to at least 300k before we are done with her. If the car has a warranty and you get a good mechanic to check it out for you then all will be ok. If it is running the original shockers they will need changing for sure
    Be Happy
