Vel Satis - known issues?

Hi there. I'm posting here on behalf of a friend who has just bought a 2003 Vel Satis at auction here in France. The model she has is the 2.2 dCI 115bhp model, called the Expression over here. I'm fairly sure the UK didn't get the 115bhp version, but I think it's an engine used in other models?

Could any of you kind people with experience of either this engine, or of the Vel Satis generally give me any tips and things to watch out for that I can pass on? For instance, the car has covered 135,000Km, and I don't know how much service history there is. When should the cambelt be changed? (An issue close to my heart, given that I drive a Fiat Coupé 2.0 16v turbo ...)

Any and all help and advice gratefully received,
