Look for rust on the wheel arches especially the rear ones near the top near the front . I have also found significant rust at the rear corners where the bodywork is hidden by the plastic bumper . And it's definitely worth looking at the ends of the steering rack to check the gators and to check for leaks. I have two of these cars and they both needed the steering rack refurbished to get it through an MOT.
