Yes, the wishbones and the bushes do tend to go (and most threads say it is hard to pin point, so sounds right), AUtolusso do a powerflex option for the front bushes on this, £500, but if you intend to keep the car a while, could be a sound investment.
Tracking tends to be off (actually it's on, but causing big inner edge wear on the wheels). If your bushes are gone it could well be tracking, most on here would recomend a full four wheel tracking when you get the car. But to test the wheels, do the usual jack up and rotate/ rock to determine bushes/ bearings.
GLow plugs should be a DIY job, find out the broken one and fit a replacement, garage will easily double price.
