Mk3 RS200 purchase


Recommended Posts

Make sure the car is cold when first driving it. A warm gearbox hides bad shifting.

Otherwise engine mounts, seat and steering wheel wear. 

If you can check the ball joints and timing belt and water pump history

As above, gearbox is probably the most common and expensive thing to fix. Next is check when the timing belts were replaced as that is also pricey to replace. 

Most other things are minor and easily fixed.

I concur with the comments above. 

Assuming a full service history is available, it will tell you when the belts and water pump were last done.  Thats the big one that you will either want done, or budget $1200 to get it done yourself when you purchase the car (if its due)
