Renault Laguna 1 - V6 12 valve Purchase Advice

Hi All
I am looking at 2 Laguna V6's phase I's. One with 190000Kms and the other with 160000kms. They are both the same price.
The higher milage car is being sold with a recond gearbox (a big plus I thought).
The other 160000km car, I am not sure about the box except that it has a good service history.
My main question is, does the PRV V6 ever have any troubles?
Do they idle a little erratic or lumpy? Does the engine oil dipsicks have a funny black glob on the bottom that looks like hardened oil ? I presume that is just so that the dip stick can be reinserted OK?
On the 190000km car there was just a smidgeon of milky coulderd oil in the corner of the oil filler cap. The renault repair shop said it was just emulsification. Would this be true?

I am edging at the 190000kms car as it will have a "new" gearbox. Just a little curious about the engine. Any help would be appreciated.

PS i have stopped looking for a JC-5 gearbox for my RXE 2.0 as I can't find one.
I am now breaking that car (sob sob).
