Soon to be Clio 172 owner needs advice

Hi everyone,

New to the board so please bear with me if questions have been asked elsewhere.

I am hoping to move to a Clio 172 shortly, 2002 ish and was wondering if you could either point me to any buyers guide type resources or alternatively, offer me some steer as to what to look out for?

I live in Northern Ireland and will be travelling across to the mainland to purchase a car and would need to have a good list of what to go through on each and every car i am comparing.

I dont want to end up bringing something home with problems and would like to be able to make the most informed decision while there.

I am pretty technically minded and am aware of the more generic obvious no-no's (smoke etc) but i would alos like to be aware of the nuances involved with this car (i had heard of starting problems and engine mounts etc)

Bear in mind, i will have to be focusing on higher mileage motors due to my budget (or lack of it) but i have seen a multitude of cars from 2200 to 3000 with around 80k on the clock which doesnt usually frighten me but i would like to hear your opinions.

Thanks for your time
