Newbie Alert!! Finally found my new type s GT!

Hi guys,

Just thought I'd get some advice and feedback on my recent purchase,

I have just got an 07 plate type s GT with 104000 on it for 3800 and it looks immaculate! FSH, most recent MOT came back with no advisories back in March and it drives faultless.... So far.

So with it being a higher milage one what should I look out for with things going wrong so I can get them looked at sooner rather than later.

Also have any of you come across this model doing 200k+ with minimal issues?

I did have a BMW 120d but redundancy forced me to free up some funds and I am very impressed with its performance and responsiveness in comparison to the BMW.

Thanks

Gary

There is just one issue on the rear passengers side trim where it needs clipping in but one of the clips is snapped.
