Missed the MPG bit. I've had my car 12 months / 24k miles, and averaged over 50mpg, with a mix of driving, but little motorway.
If you're happy doing 70mph, 55mpg will be easily achievable.
As for price, I'd say if you're getting the car under £3500.... you're getting a good deal, assuming it's in good condition.
As for the clutch, if it needs one, you'll at least have a new one. Mine has the 305 clutch, it did 50k, replaced with the 325 one.... which is going ok so far.
