As said,the high mileage isn't too much to worry about as long as the service history is good.People get too excited by mileages,I'd rather have a car with a load of motorway miles on it and a good history rather than one that has travelled a tenth of that mileage in short journeys and expecially around town.The constant cold starting and running can cause much more damage to the engine and driving around town will wear brakes and clutches out much faster.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
