what a beautiful machine drives very well, hard to find cosmos black, 9 months of hard searching until this came along..
bodywork generally very good for age although its not faultess.. some small car park dings, the odd scratch and some rust on the bottom of the doors (common) the worst being the passenger door but I have a replacement to go with the car. small amount of bubbling on the sunroof panel not the actual roof itself (again a common issue)
interior wise there's some slight bolster wear on drivers seat no holes its 20 years old now so has to be expected. not smoked in so no burn marks etc.
tinted windows. i like them but easy enough to remove if not to your taste.
fantastic alpine/jl audio install, sounds absolutely amazing and needs to be heard in the flesh, inside the cabin you would not tell as no big holes cut for speakers etc its just been uprated with better than factory components. in the boot you will however find the subwoofer and the amps in the boot/ski hatch.
i have all of the original components to go with the car so if its not to your taste you can have them swapped over.
my 8 does have some small faults as they all do but i prefer to mention unlike others as i dont want my time/your time wasted.
electric tilt steering wheel not working. ( had it tested and it’s the motor at fault £300 fix )
the roof headliner needs to be sorted.
the electric seat base needs the cable adjusting as it has slackened over the years. (info on the internet diy fix)
Very Small oil leak
overall a fantastic much loved example always garaged never driven in the wet. its a 3rd car so doesnt get used all that much just purely for driving. A childhood poster car for me..
