An 03 plate, "should" be the face lift (introduced Autumn 2002), with better lubrication for the piston ring area to prevent burnt carbon deposits clogging the rings.

Look for two remote keys, corrosion on the alloy wheels and inside face of the brake discs. The radiators last around 10-12 years, so you could ask if it has been replaced recently.

The optional £1500 "premium" pack of leather/climate/sunroof makes the car more desirable to a potential buyer.

HTH.
