At the end of the day its up to you, these are only pointers of things you should look at. As long as the cambelt has been changed recently and its been regularly serviced you should'nt have a problem.

Is the clutch okay ? Put the car in gear with the handbrake on, let the clutch out slowly, does it stall straightaway or do you get lots of juddering, if so budget for a replacement clutch (250).

Are the tyres evenly worn? Will they need replacing soon ?

These are all things that you should work into your final price.

Always haggle the price, if your buying from a dealer ask him to service as part of the deal.

Feel free to ask more questions
