I bought a car like this with 45K miles about 6 months ago. As far as I
know, the turbos are original. I switched to Mobil 1 since that should
be more resistant to coking in the turbo bearings. I've heard that they
bypass valves should be replaced/upgraded.
 From talks with various people, the timing belt should be taken care of
between 60 and 70K miles. Even AofA suggested (on the phone) that 90 K
should be the interval, not 104K like in the owners manual.
Call AofA about it to confirm, then get the seller to pay for the work.
