Upgrading to a newer 156

I have a W Reg 156 1.8TS which I love and have had for 2 and a bit years. But I have an urge to buy something newer and lower mileage. I'm thinking about going to look at this 2.0 JTS VELOCE Auto Trader UK - ALFA ROMEO 156 2.0 JTS VELOCE 2 4DR ##RARE MODEL##. I went to look at one similar to this a couple of weeks ago and wasn't particularly impressed. The interior (same trim as this one) looked very worn even though it was similar lowish mileage, and the side skirt things looked very "stuck on". Is that normal with this model? Any comments/advice greatly appreciated.

Regardless of mileage it is due new belts because of it's age, so factor that in.

Thats the same model i have just upgraded to with simular millage, but in sexy black. just get the cam belt done asap whatever the history says. also change the pollen filter if no air blows through the duel climate control. the skirts on mine also have the stuck on look to them, as if someone at halfords have done the job, lol
