Buying brera 2.2 prodrive

I'm looking at a 125k brera S for sale at a local non specialist....
It states it has a full detailed history and just two owners...
Any particular issues I need to look at before I visit?
I'm aware it doesn't have a cambelt to worry about and are there any problems relating to the S side of things?

If it was me looking to buy the car I'd like to see in the service history it's had a timing chain replacement, & also a new set of bearings fitted in to the gearbox. Don't over pay for the car they're no more special than standard Brera's

Front springs. Both of mine were corroded and one snapped. Front subframe corrosion. Uneven tyre wear due to alignment. At 125k i would want to see proof of the detailed service as the service schedule is too long and may give you grief long term. Timing chain replacement receipt if its been done. Spark plugs every 60k? So at the mileage.

Forgot to mention. For s spec, find out if it is prodrive or not. Exhaust backbox has a half moon shape tail pipe and the 19" prodrive alloys. You can see through the the wheels and arch for the prodrive shock absorber at the front
