Hi all,

 

I currently own a 1.6 Diesel MK2 Ford Focus that I absolutely love, unfortunately my desire to buy a capri has now become overwhelming so i'm going for it!

 

I am looking at a MK3 2.0, it has failed it's last MOT on the following points (As listed by the seller):

 

- Fuel lines at front and rear are insecure( just need p clipping to chassis)
- Small fuel leak from fuel sender and carb (I have a carb gasket kit to sort out the carb)

 

- Exhaust gasses are leaking from head.
 
The body seems in a condition with little/no rust and it has a grey recaro interior in mint condition. I am going to see it tomorrow night so will be able to provide more information regarding it's condition.
 
I am looking at paying around £1500 for this at the most, is this a fair estimation? Should I be willing to pay more, less?
 
Obviously the exhaust gasses are the main concern for me, and so long as it is not a cracked head I am in the belief I should be able to sort it? Should I be more concerned?
 
Am I looking at a world of pain here? Should I wait for something else to come around?
 
Thanks a lot for any advice, it really is appreciated! When I do get one (When being the operative word!) i'll be sure to keep everyone up on the progress.
 
Thanks again,
Warren
