Hi I'm going to view a mk3 RS1800 on Saturday never owned a fiesta but always liked them.

It's a 94 I'm sure I read that it will have power steering ? Not that it really matters as there so light.
Owner claims 195 boho but no proof is this reasonable?
Anything I should look out for, common faults, rust areas etc?

Is not my taste of colour lime green but I do plan on painting it black sticking some nice dished wheels on it and get it looking more original.
Cheers

Rust, sills, floor, arches, fuel filler cap, sunroof, rear suspension turrets (in the boot)
also I believe all rs1800's have pas. Just check everything works and usual stuff.

195bhp? N/A? no chance unless £££ thrown at it

As said rust on sills, arches, inner arches, inner sills, bulkhead, floor pan, around windscreen, around sunroof, rear turrets, bootlid, boot floor, valances if you can see them
