Opinions on buying a 1.5 dci Scenic with high miles.

I have seen a lovely looking 2008 scenic 1.5 dci dynamic at a nearby garage, it has fully itemised service history including 6 renault stamps in the book I am told. I have not seen it or driven it yet, I got the info from their website.
Now it's only 4 years old or there abouts but it has done 152000 miles so obviously way above average for it's age. If it were a 1.9 dci I would be a little less concerned but what are the 1.5 engines like for high miles? Can they do 200k plus like bigger engines or are my concerns valid? It is up for 2750 so is cheaper than one with average mileage.
What are your views, especially those of you who have a car with the same engine in?
Currently in denny james's garage:
Megane 2
