Bargain? What should I be looking out for

Just as in the post title, this has come up and seems a good deal. Should I be put off by the nearly 200k miles?

It says service history so if that's genuine then I wouldn't be put off by the mileage. Personally I'd go for an automatic, I've had a manual for 2 years and just swapped to an auto. Don't get me wrong the manual is fine but the auto is just easier.

United Kingdom 2006 Discovery 3 TDV6 SE Manual Tonga GreenDiscovery 3

I paid £3.2k for a 195k mile from a small trader just before xmas (xmas eve in fact). Exact spec I was after SE with all the extras, fridge, bluetooth, new set of LR mats + Tonga and a manual (personal choice, I drove a few autos and wasn't for me).

Two things stand out to me;
1) I might be wrong, but as a trader they cannot exonerate themselves from offering warranty as such under the CRA despite what they say for a business to private sale. I passed up on any where they had stated such, it's just not cricket.
2) No pics of interior and its a bit pricey for a cloth? Although at this price point, I doubt there could be a massive difference.

Couple of pics of mine (admittedly I've tidied it up a bit) to see what can be available around this price.









It was up for sale for £2950 but ended up at £3.2k as airbag on the suspension went just before I test drove it, replacement + other work carried out (new wishbones, brake servo etc) left the trader losing money at the original price (and he was a really nice down to earth chap).

It’s right around the tax change time isn’t it, it could be in the high tax bracket, think it was April 06 it changed?

Make sure the belts were done within last 7 years/105k miles,

At that age if it has not been done then an oil pump change (with timing belts) would be something to think about.
