England Soon to be mini owner

Hi guys, looking forward to being on board....

I haven't actually took the plunge yet but I'm looking at getting a 57 plate 1.6 Cooper D.

Only sticking block is it's got 142000 on the clock. Is that acceptable for a modern day Diesel engine or is it one to avoid? Current owner says it's had work done in last 12 months....new egr, new turbo, new springs etc....but I would be grateful of some advice from the people who actually own them?

Current car is a 1999 V 406 hdi with over 200k on the clock but I have peugeot planet to help me along with that......

Mini is for the wife so it's my #*#* on the chopping block if I buy a dud:

Thanks
Neil...
