Re: FS eBay 216 K series Cabriolet 1996 27K miles Green

There is rust on the NSF corner sill though and it's starting on other areas around the sills.

Coolant level at the min mark, could do with changing but no oil in it.

Re: FS: Ebay. 214SLi M reg, 55K, Weston Super Mare £300 damaged front suspension

The fuel lines are insecure as an advisory on the MOT, with a comment 'DANGEROUS' - just a bit!

Would need looking at for potential structural damage in addition to the 'replaceable components'?

Re: FS eBay 216 K series Cabriolet 1996 27K miles Green

"This vehicle is trailer collection only, or we can deliver" :headbanging But looking at their other sales it's just their cautious policy. I was only allowed to trundle it round the car park but it seemed fine apart from the somewhat high clutch...forgot to test the leccy roof though. All gears go ...

Re: FS; Early 216 GSi

Been checking parts availability, doesn't look like you can get most of the coolant hoses for these unless I'm mistaken? Had a look under Concerto as well.

Popped in with Streetwise opposite gate 2 until about 11:20 when someone decided to put the Hamster Dance on the tannoy as I was leaving... :blink

It's not an auto...photos show a gearlever.

History of corrosion on MOT though.

Re: FS eBay 216 K series Cabriolet 1996 27K miles Green

Having viewed it today I expect the only reason it hasn't sold yet is the price! They don't let you test drive but you can trundle it round the car park... Clutch is a bit high and tyres are a mix and perishing. In very good shape generally though, looks better than in the photos. To be relisted nex...

Re: Rough Idle

Might help to clean the inside of the throttle body and the injector underneath the air filter with carb cleaner and an old (tooth)brush, plus give it an Italian tune-up with high revs....this finally seemed to help mine after some time faffing about checking for leaks (e.g. the hose from the unders...
