Camberley Motorhouse have the above for sale and looks good value. FSH, looks like it's sitting on coilovers and £800 spent on brakes recently. It's 'leggy' with 175k miles and not sure of state of gearbox/cambelt/turbos/intercoolers etc but any previous owners on here? I only do about 3k miles per year so it would be a nice weekend toy, or is it a potential money pit at that mileage? Any thoughts/advice appreciated. Thanks

Any early long life servicing would be a worry. 20k is too much for any oil imho.
If the service history is comprehensive and meticulous I would worry a lot less. DRC isn't there so that's a major tick in the box.
Cambelt is more time based than mileage so worth checking when that was last done.
The rest as you say is the worry but if there is that service history, that's a lot of car for the money!! You could perhaps get some further discount if the cam belt is due?
No / limited service history and I would walk though!
If in generally good nick for year / mileage, could be worth a punt for sure.
