I have had 3 si's now all have had their good and bad areas with the bodywork. i have found the main areas to look out for are the same as any other mk3/3.5 fiesta

REAR STRUT TOWERS - feel all the way round push back seats forward to do so so and get right in there.

UNDER SILLS - along the entire length.

TOP OF SILLS - where door seal runs towards pillar.

REAR INNER AND OUTER ARCHES - normally from rust from inside out so have have a pin handy if any big blisters, if the they pop and water comes out you know back arches are full of filler (which is like a sponge) and new inner and outer arches will need to be fitted. normal bubbling is ok take a magnet also!

PETROL CAP - as above. however bit better on mk3.5 take a magnet it should stick all way round if not bodged with filler don't let a good looking one mislead you as it will go tatty very quickly.

SEAT BELT ANCHORAGE POINT.

FRONT AND REAR VALANCES RUST THROUGH - have a poke round inside boot as well where rear bumper studs come through sometimes go around there.

on the mechanical sides of things the zetec engines are bullet proof usually if it's the 1.6 you go for. occasionally sticky valves and poor idle but these can be cheaply and easily be rectified.

lower front arms are the only other weak spot i have encountered normally on lowered cars only they tend to wander around a bit on the road you couldn't miss it again not too expensive.

Hope this hasn't put you off as the Si really is worth every penny and allthough they aren't a quick car as such they are very enjoyable to own and drive which is why im on my third!

The main thing when looking for one is not to be too careful and don't be afraid to walk away if your not sure never rush in and buy the first you see!

i have only had my si for a few days, but after owning alot of fezzys, id say the si is the best one to go for, even thou the 1.6 is only 90bhp, its suprisingly not that slow!(i have plans to cam mine!) id go for it :)
