2006 Cobalt SS

Hey all,
I have been offered a chance to buy a 2006 cobalt SS a/t it has 96000 on it been well cared for. I currently own a 2002 chevy cavalier 2.2 ecotec 5- speed 190000 miles.
I'm not new to the ecotec motor so heres my questions what do I need to look for mechanical or electrical. Should I have any concerns buying this car. This will be my first supercharged vehicle. But I have been around and worked on many turbo vehicles.

Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

for my twisted sense of humor but just my way to initiate new members.

At that mileage if it's had regular maintenance only thing I would worry about is making sure aftercooler pump works and that the timing chain first generation tensioner has been changed to the better one.

Not that you have to answer, but what are they asking?
