Alright chaps! what to look for?

Question 
Hi guys sorry to be brief but I'm on my way to pick up a 306 D Turbo estate X reg as my new daily drive.
It has 120k on and is what I think pretty cheap at 400 quid with test. Anything to look out for? Any advice would be great.
It's in meridian blue by the way.
Undecided

I guess its actually a HDi Meridian estate? They didn't make a DTurbo estate.

The rear beam, arch rust would be the main things, then just normal car checks really!

darren has a lowering guide. Most paces will charge around £100 to lower the rear beam.

Things to watch for... rust in the passenger side rear arch, all the arch liners there, smashed boot plastic, engine starts first time, all electrics work especially all electric windows and mirrors, airbag lights. Pretty much it.

Indeed, it may've come with an XUD engine, but its still either an LX or a Meridian. lol

Cant see a X reg coming with a xud lump but i don't mind being proven wring. Did they actually do a Dturbo trim estate?

No, I meant Mikes might've come with an XUD. X reg definitely didn't.

And nope, no DTurbo estate. LX, GLX, Meridian and Meridian SE only afaik.
