Buying a 2011 Ds4

Hi everyone.
I found a 2011 2.0 HDi with 163HP, full option. It has 185k km's on the clock. For the price I'd get it at, I am quite satisfied.

However it has a few issues which I am not sure about. I wouldn't like to buy a car which will give me big expenses or problems within a short time.Due to my lack of experience, I am not sure how much to worry about it.

First is rust on the door hinges, which I also saw on 2 other Ds4's I looked at (photo attached). Does anyone have experience with this and how much of a problem could it be? I haven't checked to great detail under the car etc., but from my general look, didn't see rust problems there.

Also, under the bonnet, on the top left side next to the coolant, I see some whitish, mold-like stuff. I am not sure what to make of it (photos attached)

Thanks for your help!

Think mine also has a bit of rust ont he hinge, keep meaning to clean it up when I notice it, but forget about a minute after I get in the house.

White-ish stuff should just wipe off with a damp cloth.

I have to take a deeper look at the car to see if there's rust in more crucial parts for sure.

Thanks for shedding some.light on the issue!
