Re: Bargain or robbery?
I wouldn't base too much emphasis on the total mileage. It depends on the care and attention it has received. So at this price look for a good servicing history (mail dealer or Alfa specialist) when were the camshaft and other belts plus variator changed?
Also what warranty is being offered?
If you search for other threads about the twin spark engine you will see about keeping the oil level up to the mark (they can use more oil than most other cars - quite normal but do not let them run low on oil) and cam belt life is not 72,000 miles as in the handbook but must be changed more frequently as low as 36,000 mile intervals to be safe.
