It's the same game with buying a GTA: buy a cheaper car and expect to have to fund some repairs, or, buy a more expensive car and then probably have to fund some repairs. However, at the end of the day, the price point that you buy in at will probably determine the resale value:
Buy a low mileage more expensive option and the resale will be higher, assuming that all options 'could' require the same expenditure on repairs.
However, like GTAs, when extra has been spent in extras, the mileage debate becomes a bit more blurred.
I bought mine 2.5 years ago at 40k for what was a relatively high price (at the time). I've since spent lots on pre-emptive maintenance and some basic upgrades however mine, if for sale (which it is not) would be considered to be overpriced by many, even though now at a leggy 81k.
Buy what you like, expect that at some point you will have to spend some money on it (it's a machine), be happy.
