what to look for in a high mileage honda

Im looking to get me a cheap car to get me back and forth from work..

I found a 2004 honda civic lx fully loaded, but it has 124,000 miles on it. What are some things I need to check for with buying a high mileage honda...Also what would you guys pay for a car like that.

Interior looks a little dingy for a $8000 car. I'm with the others I say $6000. Are they paying for the bumper they screwed by parking it on the curb?
