Looking to buy a used mini...

Hello, I am a new member to the forum but I have been lurking for quite some time. I have been shopping for a used Mini and have recently come across a 2007 Mini S with 79,xxx miles for $7000 OBO. I will be looking at it sometime this week and I wanted to get some opinions on the top things I should look out for when test driving a new Mini? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Lots of problems with the N14 engine ... timing chain tensioner and carbon build-up (coking) of intake valves.
