Help Advice before I buy

I've owned a P1 GTV for many years and would like to replace her with a Brera. I'm looking at a 59 plate 2.4JTDM which has done 37,000 miles. The general condition is very good apart from some stone chipping which will be sorted out, but I noticed it seems to have a very slight turbo lag at lower revs, which I find surprising for such a big engine. I should add that the test drive was relatively short and on restricted roads so I didn't really get the chance to stretch its legs. Is this normal or should I suspect there might be a problem?

Any helpful advice on things to look out for would be much appreciated!
