115k, thats a score in my book, and for the condition, that is a very good price(the condition is very good).

go check the car out nice and early in the mornin
if she starts first shot, good stuff, take it for a spin
on a nice long straight, burn her around 160-170 km/h
80-90 mph for about 1km when you back of the accelerator.
Look in the review for white smoke, if none good stuff!

Price looks, body look neat, should be a good buy!
Good Luck

if it was maintained correctly then mileage isnt that big of a deal, of course it will bring the price down which is good

I think mileage doesn t have to be a problem, the only question is the maintenance history of this car ( I mean: was the last owner consequent with maintenance of the car)

also drive a test drive with the car, spin it up to the red line, and test the brakes with an emergency stop.

check also the steering of the car
