|pfsantos||Can't find a pic, but the front drains come out between the front fender/wheelwell liner and the body - one on each side. The front wheel liners are actually two halves, so I'm talking about the rear halves. These drains are a foam tube reinforced by a spring that runs inside, but even with the spring (it ends up skewing), the end of the hose ends up collapsed due being sandwiched. Mine had the ends collapsed and gunk inside and the foam tube had softened near the end, I guess from the moisture being trapped.|

CV joint boot longevity

If that trick was good enough to preserve the CV joints of French cars 45 years ago, it might work on your B200 now.

|Mike Ti||Yeah I'd expect when you hit more than double that, things will go sideways. But by then you'll be 100 years old|

So far at ~125,000 Km none of this has happened..No leaks..water, oil or whatever .., no bulbs, no pads or disks and no codes...just always keeping a close eye on the rear disks and keeping the shine on them..
Things should start showing up soon I would expect........

^ I'm going to agree, but more specifically, the boots are crap. They're more plastic than rubber.
I do recall, however, someone had a stress crack on a driveshaft, I think.
Everyone, keep your eyes out for cracks or evidence of grease around the boot areas.

|Mike Ti||+1. The driveshafts are crap too.|

I have a 5-speed (non-turbo B200). Worn clutch (in process of replacing, took time to get all the parts, but it's a spare car).
The 6-speed is in the B200 Turbos, in case you didn't know.
The most reliable B's are probably the non-turbo, manual, non-sunroof cars, lol! Mine has the sunroof, though!
