Well I guess a 99 model is not going to be in the big thousands. If it was newer i would stay away as i just simply would never sell on.

Definatly get an independent inspection on the car in case it has other faults which could be dangerous.

Also i highly doubt a mk5 gear would fit a mk4 without big modifications.. but then again i have seen a Lexus IS200 front on a fiesta before so anything can be done if you have the time and skill.

If you look at the shape of a MK4 and the shape of a MK5 the obvious answer is NO, at least without major mods done to it. Regarding category vehicles, certain categories can and are quite easily repaired and put back on the road, check out the uk tv shows on satelite tv.
