Description

I bought this car on 12/11/2005 for 4000 Euro and I have spent more than 2000 Euro on the following repairs:

Rear Axle: multi link silent blocks
Front suspension: complete rebuilt with silent blocks (all changed)
Engine: distribution + water pump.
Body: Nothing
Interior: Leather treatment
New fuse case
Airco fan

It's a very fine car, comfortable, luxurious ... safe transport everywhere you want to go.
It had 3 owners before me, and they all treated it well. But there are still lots of problems to be fixed, because it has been well used (428000km's !!!).

The front axle has moved, so it gives some problem with the wheel alignment.
Engine is leaking oil near the gearbox.
Lots of electrical problems (airco, seats, speed control.) that is one of the pleasures driving of an Italian built car, designed in Sweden.

I do not use the car for daily travel since September 2006, so it becomes the restoration project after I have finished my 244.
