Purchase of a '96 XJ 4.0

Right guys, i'm 17 years old, and really looking into purchasing an XJ for my first car. For the most part i've been looking at 2.5 TD's because i want a manual, but i recently stumbled upon a '96 4.0.
I first noticed it because i saw the photos were shot a stone toss away from my house, but then i noticed the price, and the fact that it isn't an automatic.
It's rolled just shy of 180000 miles, but looks in good shape. Supposedly no major rust. Only the odd rust spot, in particular on the exhaust. The guy is only asking $2800.
He's claiming 184hp, but stock it should be 190 right? (Although i suppose a few may have escaped in 17 years)
After this many miles, naturlly i'm a little concerned about how many it has left in it. But i've heard mainly good things about the 4.0
I guess you guys won't get much from it considering the ad is in norwegian, but here it is: http://www.finn.no/finn/car/used/obj...nkode=44160713

Thanks for any replies in advance!
