Hi Folks. I recently bought a 2006 100 series with 250k miles on it. Its in pretty good condition. The service book shows approximately 2 services a year from 2006 to 2018. The book is then full, and the new one unfortunately lost. One owner from 2006 - 2023, so I assume he kept up the excellent service regime. The chassis is thankfully solid, and I've had it professionally cleaned and undersealed. Ive also had work done to the back end, sills, and had new suspension put in. So my questions is - what should I look out for - and should I be bothered about the "high milage"? Cheers for advice.
If UK based, the dealer can pull all the service history for you, showing what was done when etc. I did that prior to buying a 100 without managing to actually see it first.
