146 boxer

Hi, I'm new and looking for another car.

I've seen a nice looking 146 1.6L Boxer, but it is quite old (1995) and got 77,500 miles on the clock. What I'm asking is would this car be a good starting point to start my Alfa ownership?
I'm worried about the cambelt issue and general maintenance of things.

Is there any way of finding out more on this car, what's the mileage of cambelt change and what things are more common fault with this model?

Any help please

Boxer engines are simpler in some respects to the twinspark and they make a fantastic noise as well as being cheaper on fuel !
If there is no evidence of the cambelts being changed before then factor in this cost.
Other things to look out for on the 146 are worn front suspension wishbones/anti roll bar links, rust in the floorpan and electrical faults.
Good luck
