Alfa 156 jts

Help with new Alfa purchase!

Hi all,
Not sure if I am in the right place or not! New to alfas and also forums so sorry!
Basically looking for advice, my partner has a 156 ts and I love it I have found a 156 jts for sale but have no idea what things I should be looking for in terms of indication of a decent motor. (I am a girl after all) it's a 53 plate and has a new mot and fsh with 82 k on the clock.
What q's should I be asking? For example, I know alfas like a drop of oil (o/h's oil consumption in his ts is ridiculous ) is there anyway I check or get an indication about things like this without obviously taking the engine apart?! The car seems like a bargain price and bodywork in really good nick so just worried I'm going to end up with a car I'll not only spend a fortune on in fuel but also on parts/ oil etc!
