After the 08/02/12 service, by the book the car should have had an oil change service at 2707 + 9000 miles (and put on a high mileage service schedule for cars doing more than 9k miles per year) but it's nothing to worry about, 99% of people and even service specialists won't even know that.

Personally, if it drives well, looks good, has good brakes and tyres, and is priced well, the fact it went over a couple services by 6/7 weeks wouldn't bother me at all with the mileage covered being so low.

Is it a stock 11 plate MY11? I would guess the price at around 46k?
I agree, as said provided everything checks out with the car it's extremely picky to discount it based on a service being carried out 6 weeks after it's due date, especially given the annual mileage wasn't particularly high.

With how busy most specialists are it only takes one set back such as work commitments that might mean rescheduling your service and not getting back in for another 4 weeks at a time that's convenient.
