Exclamation Thinking of buying 2005 mini-HELP

Hello everyone,
I just had my car stolen and I am thinking of buying a MINI. I have been trying to do research because I cannot afford to buy new and I am trying to get the best used possible. There is a, 47K miles for sale in my area (California, US). Manual, clean title. Sports, cold weather and premiere packages including moon roof. Looks good from the pics online and spoke with the owner and they said they had the clutch rebuilt and there is a light for the passenger airbag that wont go off is the only problems. I also called a local mini dealer and they said it would be $180 to have it fully inspected for any problems and just from information provided, MINI recommends "re-hoseing" (what is that?) of entire car at 60K or 70K to prevent over heating that will cost $1700. I know that the upkeep is more expensive then most cars but supposed to be less frequent?

I will take all the info I can get. You can touch on all of the subjects I mentioned or just one or anything else you can think of that I should know before I buy.

Why cant I delete this post???
