To be honest I think 1900 is a bit much to say its a CAT D

One thing to look out for on the VVT engine is the Depasher Solenoid - check that its not rattling at startup or at idle !

The keyfob battery can be changed quite easily and cheaply.

Check ALL the electrics work too , but pay particular attention to the electric windows as the regulators in them have a tendancy to fail and windows doesnt move. If there slow going up or down and or screech, its on its way out too.

Oh and check the cambelt has been changed. It should have been done. That s a fair few quid to get changed too.
