I bought it secondhand a while ago at 48k, since then I had new DI, headgasket, new timing chain/ sprokets and the gearbox overhauled. Still same clutch - no problems. I have also fitted the Aero 16" wheels and 16/205/55 tires. Best car I've ever had. At that mileage (105k), it all comes down to maintenance condition and price. Service history and bills are essential. Johannes
