Well...i am now an owner of said car. I have practically zero mechanical knowledge and have never ever bought a used car before, so was somewhat apprehensive. I can only base my choice on logical standards and 'feel' and, although all that lacking leaves me very vulnerable (as a very obvious newbie to buying, with 'sucker' stamped to my forehead), i believe that i have lucked upon a little gem. It only went up for sale on Saturday, i saw it Sunday evening and bought it this morning. Rushed (i know) and unseen, two words that would usual send an already worrying little old me in to a total frenzy, yet it still 'feels' ok. Anyway, i was unsure about tempting fate by posting this but thought that at the very least it allows someone to tell me what a complete fool i am.
Loosely specs are...
3 owners. Last one for 7 years.
7 years mot and service with the dealership now selling.

Inspection and full service before delivery.
