Welcome and great choice of car👍🏻 I would love to drive a mk2 in Switzerland beautiful scenery and roads. Dont let mileage put you off as long as condition and history are good then it will be fine. If you get the Mk2 just make sure to give it a full service and all the belts done.

:welcome: Steph

Mileage wouldn't concern me as long as the car has been looked after. I had my MK2 RS from new and has now covered 67k miles so 108,000 km with Mountune MR 375 conversion in 2013, car drives still like new.

Steph, these engines were made to do 250,000 miles, provided they're looked after and serviced thoroughly. What you're looking at is a baby still.

It does look like its been sprayed over before with overspray on the arch liner? If they do sort it for you its not a cheap and easy job especially as its a 3 stage pearl? If it has rust there it will more then likely have rust in between the rear bumper where it meets the arch? It cost me £800 for both my rear arches to be done and they sprayed the whole rear quarter but mines blue and UG will be more expensive to sort. Make sure they can match the paint and take it back to bare metal. Its not something that cant be fixed if all else is ok 👍🏻

Hi guys 

 

thuesday i went try a Ford Focus RS MK3 just to know how this thing goes and to make sure that the MK2 is the right one for me :p and it is.

 

MK3 is fun but it's doesn't get that road presence as the MK2 and i also prefer a lot the sound of the five pot  :thumbsup:

 

i'm gonna get my MK2 in september if everything goes right  :thumbsup:
