I was the originator of the 'in defence of the 20v' thread. It's by a distance the best car I've ever owned (35 years and counting!). Enjoy your car. It may have some problems, or it may not, depending on luck/previous usage/mileage/servicing blah blah blah. whatever you buy wont be much if any better, ever. For my money the 175bhp 20v motor is a contestant for best standard commercially available power unit in the history of the universe, in any car, in any parallel universe too. This level of power, torque vs economy is fantasy league material, my current readout for average mpg is 53, and I use it everyday for work AND "enjoy" the performance on a regular basis. In answer to your question NO! they really arent that bad, in fact bring on a competitor and lets have a laugh... Enjoy it man, it may be a long time...
