Default Pre-purchase question, 2001 130k miles

I'm not heavily experienced in S2000 experience, so is there anything massively I could identify on the test drive?
Would the mileage be something to avoid? It has a full service history, so I guess that would flag anything hugely problematic?

No prob. I used both to buy mine, which I picked up on Saturday: 2005 with 47k miles

Beautiful, How many miles was yours when purchased? What price did you pay also, if you don't mind me asking?

47,300 miles, paid £12,500. One owner, always garaged, so minimal rust, perfect MOT (only advisory since new was that fronts were almost done), and interior/exterior are pristine (just a few rock chips). Engine bay looks beautiful (see below). Took me a while to find one that looks good, completely stock, and was properly maintained.
