Summary:

Do not ship them to Africa, they are best enjoyed here!

Faults:

The ignition wires were kind of hard to find. Other than that, nothing out of the ordinary for a 17 year old car.

Electrics can be a bit dodgy. Sun roofs never work, so get one that is closed!

General Comments:

Can you believe it: a 17 year old car that still kicks butt!! I traded my BMW 728i on this car and haven't regretted it yet. This car is quick and comfortable. It has loads of class. I use it as a daily driver and it has not let me down so far.

I have also enjoyed my Peugeot 505 Turbo Injection, but my car is a 1986 model which gave me 180hp when I slightly closed the bypass valve on the turbo.

The car has given me several headaches due to the high costs of spare parts here in Norway. Think I will keep the car for one more year, or maybe go to France and have it restored for a reasonable amount of money??

Have a nice day and enjoy your turbo-car!

Summary:

A lot of car for a modest 2nd hand price, getting scarce though

Faults:

Independent rear suspension arms. Were rusted badly. New ones are available, not cheap.

Gasket between the exhaust and engine blown.

Other than that, no problems whatsoever.

General Comments:

Great ride, very comfortable.

Handles very well.

Still beautiful Pinifarina design.

Reliable.
