Things to look for when considering a S80 purchase

Looking at a 2001 S80 T6 Exec Twin Turbo, full 'luxury interior', 106K miles. One owner, dealer serviced.

Whats a good price for this?

What kind of things should I look at in terms of mechanical issues? Other?

I would check a carfax report on it. Also, to get a benchmark on price you can check Kelly Blue Book, I think its kbb.com online and ebay to see what the asking ranges are for this car.

Thanks.. I did that...

My concerns are that there are hidden things about certain models you don't find out until after you buy them...

I understand, for instance, that the 960 series are ones you want to stay away from (lots of mechanical gremlins), or like with the Saabs (I own 2 9-5's) that you want to stay away from the early 9-5 V6's....

105k?

I would probably ask if the timing belt service has been done, it's due at 105k and is not a cheap maintenance service.
