    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    The broken springs are always worth looking out for. Also check for corrosion on the lower offside corner of the radiator. They have a habit of leaking where the metal meets the plastic.

    Cam chain is done at 60k as far as I remember, so it's unlikely to have been done. You buying from a dealer? You might be able to haggle for them to do the chain as part of the deal.

    Check the cruise control works as the buttons on the indicator stalk often fail. Also make sure the clutch returns all the way to the top when it's released (the springs often break, no problem with clutch operation, but can stop the cruise control switch working)

    Oh, and check for dampness in the boot if it's a hatchback. Very common for the spare wheel-well to fill with water (various possible leaks)
