High Mileage Cru

I was wondering if anyone has a GT JTD that has higher mileage, or if anyone has any knowledge on the subject. I was planning on getting a 147 but after seeing a few really nice GT's for not too much money, I've upped the budget to 3500. Seen a few of the GT 1.9 JTD on 130k for that kind of money but am I gonna be hit with garage bills regularly or if its been serviced regularly should I be ok? I work about .4 miles away so its not like I'm gonna rack up the miles on it, I would guess I'll do about 5k a year.

147 jtd mjet

these engines are found in vauxhalls, saabs, sukukis, etc and rack up milages that would make the starship enterprise pround. dont worry, if its been regulary serviced "with correct oil" belt kits and water pumps replaced etc. then there is nothing to worry about with such a low milage as 130k i know a vectra sri150 used as a taxi with 450k on the original engine
