More V8 Vantage Questions...high mileage

Hi Folks,
I am new here too....previously owned a DB7, now looking at an 06 Vantage, black on black. It has 40,000 miles on it, but new brakes, clutch and cosmetically looks good. My concern is that there are no recent dealer service records on it. I believe it has been serviced, and I hear no funny engine noise...but do you know how I might tell for sure or what other things I might inspect? (PS - there is no longer a dealer in my town...closest is nearly 100 miles away so no quick inspection during a test drive)
What might I expect to replace in the near future with the number of miles on this car?
Thanks so much for any info you can give me.

Check to see if the check engine light is on. If it's not, that is a good sign. My 07 was just in the shop with 23,000, replaced engine thermostat (under warranty). It also had a cracked airbox, which was only a $300 repair. These cars are pretty hard to evaluate without a computer. Good luck, Larry
Thanks lhanddds...I bought the Aston and she drives great so far. No check engine light and the dealer put almost $5k into new clutch, brakes, service so I think all is good. I appreciate the well wishes and am really enjoying her so far.
