Beautiful car there, congrats!!

I was at my friends shop today and I believe he had on of these on the lift, new tires all around on euromeister chromes, great looking car, it had air suspension too, must drive like a dream! Enjoy!

Over 184K and it's sweet!

It MUST have been that leather wrapped dash that got 'er going, what else do you have to offer?

Well I finally collected her today! The paintwork has turned out to be amazing (will post some pics).

It roars along with excellent acceleration, good idle etc so all this talk about solex problems is dishartnening as my car is perfect.

Does anyone have a maintenance shedule for the model (ie oil changes, greasing etc)

I think the tappets may need adjustment and the exhaust is a bit boomy at certain speeds..I guess an OE exhaust would help
