Why are you worrying about miles? You can get a vehicle at 80k that's had little oil changes, been thrashed around town from cold and is a dog. Or one that has done 250k with good maintainence all up and down the motorway. And the reverse.

It's condition that counts, what's the condition of the motor, the starting, the compression, how clean is the inside of the engine, when was the cambelt done, is the coolant fresh (sign of good maintainence) has the gearbox oil been changed, service history etc.
