1983 Ford Sierra XR4I 3.1 petrol from UK and Ireland
A brilliant classic with a V6 roar
Rear nearside suspension bangs over bumps in the road. Rear wiper motor stopped working. Brakes effective when used hard, but spongy at all other times.
I had the engine re-bored to a 3.1, fitted Kent fast road cams and fit unleaded cylinder heads. So if if didn't go like stink before it certainly does now. The handling and steering and high speeds and sharp bends is brilliant. The cars good fun when it's wet on the road it power slides with no effort whatsoever, roundabouts are brilliant fun. However the cars interior is now showing it's age, the dashboard has cracked due to the sunlight and the drivers seat is worn.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
