I also thought it sounded expensive.

I would go for a longer warranty.

Check the intercooler is not bulging or is the reinforced, strapped variety.

Is there any smoke from the exhaust? Tell them you want the EGR and throttle valve damper ( EGR housing) cleaned before you'll take it or walk away.

Check ALL electrics

Bear in mind you won't be able to fully check the aircon because of the cold weather but you'd at least want it to demist properly

It should have decent shove from 2k revs in third; acceleration should be smooth; 40-50mpg should be easy.

They're nice cruisers lags, so make sure there's no rattles

oh yeah, if it has xenons make sure the squirters go back down - they only work with the lights on and are a pain to replace when they stick up - check with several squirts
