From memory it was fairly easy to take off when I had a mk2.5, pretty sure it's just a few torx screws holding it in place. If you have trolley jack and axle stands youll be fine.

Be aware thought its a messy job!

Just check for dings/dents to bodywork or scrapes on wheels. With those miles on it, check for stone chips to bonnet/screen as it's likely to have done lots of motorway mileage.

If the dealer has done their job right you shouldn't find any problems.

Diesels do need a good run regularly to keep them in good nick, as they take a while to warm up.

Service intervals 12.5k.

I've had ex hire car before, no problems with it. Just check condition, but thats like with any car really.

The 1.6 petrol is gutless, even in 125bhp guise. I had an 11 plate one, felt like you had to thrash it all time to get it to move.

37k on a 13 plate car definitely seems high, if you go for the that own check servies have been done at right intervals, also ask who was previous owner. Could be ex hire car, if so check condition carefully, they aren't all bad some are obviously abused.
