make sure it has full SH and also would trust a Jaguar approved vehicle more myself due to the check they do.
Checks they are supposed to do...,
I hope they do, and assume they mostly do, but yes did read that someone found some dealer didn’t.

Don't cast off the diesel versions as the 180 gives out 111gm of CO2. You may get a better younger car than a petrol since diesel became as popular as the Devil's back passage. Road tax is £35 and mpg is higher into the late 60's or more depending on how it's driven. Buy from a dealer if you can rather than a trader. I am not saying traders sell bum cars but sometimes they get lemons from auctions and may have lesser knowledge of the cars that they sell. That is your choice.
Thanks alot for advice everyone, it's greatly appreciated! I have looked at diesels and there is much much more choice than petrols. However I only do a 10 mile commute each day, so a diesel probaly won't be as suitable as petrol?

My last service (5th year service) was £285. This was on the 3+ servicing scheme where the labour rate is discounted 40%. Not all dealers are part of the scheme, so it's worth checking with your local ones.

That's reasonable to be fair. Do you know if there is an interval for the timing chain? thanks

If you do annual oil and filter changes a diesel should not be a problem. If you go down that path choose a 180 with as much extras as you can find. I wouldn't worry about timing chains under 80000-10000, even then they should still be OK. It's like all cars, thrash them hard all the time and you will get problems. Driven sensibly with full servicing at the correct times and theoretically they should give excellent trouble free motoring.

Prices for the 3+ servicing shown below. If there is a dealer near you that participates in the scheme.

Avoid the diesel like the plague. A 200 or 250 petrol will do you just fine. Over 10 miles from cold, the petrol will probably do 35mpg and the diesel 45mpg so there really isn't a saving. After 2017 road tax is the same so no saving there.
