Check the air conditioning works perfectly. The air con pipes are quite fragile it seems.
Depending on how old it is, check the rear quarter for rust. Sometimes if the bumpers have been refitted, they rub on the arch which goes through the paint and rusts.
Awesome, that's a great help. Thank you. Are there any mechanically based things to look out for in regards to age / mileage? Or just pretty standard stuff?

Well if I was to appraise a Corsa VXR, I would check for the following;
Rust to the arches
Damage to bumpers/splitters (these are quite expensive if they're beyond repair)
Door mirror casings for cracking paint
Door mirror sizes match (a few were replaced under warranty for cracked paint, original part was superseded to a different size - I've seen cars with different sized mirrors)
Exhaust (if modified - check that a catalytic converter is present)
Any engine bay modifications (easy to spot)
Seat trim hasn't become detached from airbag unit
Steering wheel VXR badge is present/not damaged (not available on their own - steering wheel replacement required)
VXR mats present and in good condition (not overly cheap to replace)
Check inflation kit and juice is present
Doesn't pop out of gear on drive
Difficult to check for a map to be honest, if an intercooler and a Remus 3 piece exhaust is there, it'll probably be mapped from my experience.
Off the top of my head, that's about it that I'd check in detail on a Corsa VXR, everything else is standard car stuff
