Thinking of buying a scenic privilege+ 2003

I'm a newbie and need some advice please, as I'm afraid I'm not a car buff!

Background - the turbo on our 52 plated laguna 1.9 dci is rapidly going home and I'm undecided whether it's worth the grand or so that the local garage have quoted to repair. I've seen from other threads here that that's about the right price, but I'm sure my son (a mechanic) can do it in for a lot less a couple of months when he get back to the UK.

As an alternative in the meantime I've just looked at a 1.9 dci scenic privelege+ on an 03 plate, 90k, private sale, one owner, that looks very clean and seems to drive well but the owner said that the engine didn't have a turbo but something called a common rail system?

I've never heard of this - before parting with my cash I would be really grateful to hear if there any problems with this system given the mileage of the car (90k), or with this model in general?
