Default 2009 R56 Mini Cooper S need advice-buying used!

So I'm seriously in the market for an R56 hatch, I've done a lot of research and ending up landing on a 09 R56 MCS with 72,000 miles. Everything checks out no weird noises besides one tick in the engine bay. Surprisingly it's not from the left side where the timing chain is and the tensioner. It's from the upper right side of the bay. I hear the normal DI tick that started from the beginning, but when I left the car on fro 15 mins the tick appeared in the UPPER right corner. Any ideas?? I'm also in the car fro $6,500 is this a decent price in the market? Thanks in advance for any help on this i need to know soon.

That's not bad in terms of mileage on an 09. I don't know about the amount though. As for the noise, I have never heard any in my 2012 car.
