you could easily expect another 100,000 miles out of it under routine maintenance. the m42's last forever. now the one thing you would want to ask him is if the profile gasket has ever been replaced. If it hasn't, run. If it has, ask when. Because that is a very common problem with the m42 where they would go out about 80,000 miles into one. But if you want to get it replaced, it would cost quite a bit. Not for the gasket its self but the actual work because it takes ALOT of work to get it out. like a couple thousand in work to get it out. but other than that, they are great cars. Easily 31 mpg highway, and they're pretty fun cars to have too. so i would defiantly consider buying it if you can get it down to $4,000.
