I was late to get back to Norfolk and had to push it a bit.....shes no sports car, but she can shift. I was a little disappointed with the pick up on country lanes, but when you realise how much metal has to shift and how smooth the gear changes are I realised Im being unfair. I had such a good time and the V8 makes such a lovely noise I was actually laughing out loud.
I've had it a week and 1000 miles and nothings dropped off yet
The only electrics that seem dodgy is the rear mirror...I cant seem to adjust the sensitivity and the air pressure lumbar support doesnt seem to do anything.
I will find a specialist in Norfolk and get the timing chains and g/box fluids and filters replaced.
I will have to spend maybe a grand on paint as being a London car, she needs help in places - in particular the edge on the bonnet under the front grill has the beginnings of rust.
The interior still smells like new, and I was suprised to find the doors had close assist coz I thought this was deleted to save money.
I've got her now I'm going to sort her out to tip-top condition.
Does anyone have any 'must do' jobs for a used W140?
Thanks for you help.
