what to look for when buying a '99 Clio

Hi there, i am looking at purchasing a car for my wife and she has decided on a clio Mk11 1.2 RT 5 Door.. now its quite old (99) but has only done 50k.. is there anything i should look for / common faults etc, i'm hardly paying a kings randsom for it so dont want to his with a 400 gearbox prob or something like that...

i know absolutely nothing about engines! can anyone offer me any guidance on common problems etc

i can test things like CV joints and gearbox just by driving it, and rust etc (these seem to quite good re the rust!!).. but is there anything i need to know / look out for before i part with any cash?
