Re: what to look for when buying a '99 Clio

550 sounds reasonable if you don't find much wrong.

500 sounds better and the 50will cover a haynes manual and maybe Breakdown cover.

Look on ebay and you'll find cheaper but you might as well stick them straight in the bin.

If it all feels right and you like the car, do it..
The fact that she actually owns and drives it is a bonus these days.
You'll have the same worries whatever you go to look at.
You could pay 3,000 for a car and still end up with a wreck.

Nothing that specific to Clios to ask her.
Just ask same as you would for any car.
Any recent work or parts fitted is a bonus for the buyer.

Good luck.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
