Hello mate and welcome to AO.
Ok things to really look out for with the 156 TS
Cambelt. When was it last changed? 3years or 36K miles is recommended.
What was changed with it, tensioners, and idlers, most of these should be done at the same time. Water pumps last a little longer but if its near 100k without having one then it will do soon.
Anti roll bar drop links and bushes wear quickly and rattle.
Bottom ball joints and upper wishbone are very common for wear. (knocking or squeaks from the suspension.)
other than that the usual wear and tear, trim missing etc but those were the main points. I'm sure there will be some more to add from someone else!
