Cam AND variator should have been done at 36k, or else allow £500 to do yourself (if its not in black and white get it done again.) due again at 72k. (massive bills if they go bang, so dont chance it at all)
plugs should have been changed at 50k
fluids replaced every 2 years.
Biggy is OIL. Many TS use quite a bit, and therefore suffer big damage when not looked after. Realy should be checked weekly. If you are buying private ask how often they check the oil. if its not regular chances are its been driven with not enough and is damaged. of course OIL needs replaced max 12k miles/yearly.
check all electrics etc, but no worse than any other car.
Clutch's may be on way out at this mileage too, and they are expensive to fit (£400 ish all in), so check its not too high to bite or too stiff.
bring an alfisti with you if you can
good luck, and welcome
