Re: High mileage 156s? (diesel or LPG)
If it is the one, the last service was at 73k, now due at 99, the nsr shock was knackered, lost its fluid and it was keyed down one side (drivers I think).
whilst they may have thrown paint at it, the rear bumper was cracked and the rear bumper and boot had been painted in 'solid red' (accident damage) rather than laquer over base and badly blown in on the rear quarter.
the front bumper had been painted, off colour, had also the roof top panel on the boot.
The car was in 5 shades of red, had a hard life, would have been a bargain at 2600-2700, but not orth any more at auction. In fact, had I not bid it would have sold for 2400quid!
