You might find that the garage swapped the wheels over for the photos (it happens).
Is the car due a cambelt change? (something else you may want to barter for).
Hard to say what to do - it depends on the type of running the car has had;
a) spent a lot of time unused, then driven 20 miles at a time every so often.
b) used daily for a miles' long round trip.
I would get the
filler cap off to check for any sludge which would identify (b), if it was there, I'd walk away.
People often place a premuim on (low) mileage, and in many cases, its not worth paying any extra for.
Best of luck regardless.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
