Well... there too different cars. the twinny has is fault's as does the boxer.
I'll go over the boxer for you..
Gustless below 3000,,, but once your at 4500 YEEEOOOWWWW... always felt more than 129bhp to me
fault's & Problems..
Cambelt's .. had one break, remember it has 2 & it cost €1,100 to fix this was at 48,000miles which is the replacement mileage. Do them every 40,000 max or every 2.5 years.
Water pump, tend to fail, not always but out of 3 boxer's 2 of ours have. the other has done 90.000 the others made it to 80K before failing. Squeeking bearings are a dead give away. about €150 to get fixed.
Wishbone Bushes front. mine last 40k my dads are still going strong at 80k... Go figure.. I drive on track
€130 per wishbone.
Exhausts rust, simple as that.
Oil comspumption, she'll use a little oil but not much... Mine's guzzling it (see above)
Get underneath & check for leaks, a little oil on the side below the filler in normal as you'll always spill when filling... you really need a funnel to put oil in.
Rust.. should'nt be any. I've found some on mine. at the top of the suspension turret's where the stress's of hard cornering have cracked the paint. again regular track use is to blame.
Brakes should be strong, but may require a bit of pedal pressure, (I've got RedDot discs & pads for over 2 years so can't remember the standard set)
check the handbrake feels ok.
Look at tires for uneven wear.
Front Subframe.(I think this is only happened to my car) I've found two small cracks just behind the rear mount for the wishbone... again see above
check the wipers work front & rear, front's proved to be troublesome on earlier models but it's a cheap fix new arm & blades from the later models
I'm getting tired now wink Come on lads what have a forgotten
