Re: yet another ebay sud
I know this car. I serviced it for many years for the original elderly owner. It was in pretty good condition when sold to a mechanic at Sidwell Motors in Exeter about 7 or 8 years ago. I lost track of it at that point and can't comment on it's recent life.
I fitted it with BLS 'fast road' lowering springs and Koni dampers for the original owner - they may still be on it. For the first 100k miles, the car was driven pretty gently. Most of the minor problems it had over the years were due to it not been given enough revs.
(The owner moved on to a 33 16v and that proved to like gentle driving even less!!)
The Alfasud should be a decent buy if it has been stored in a dry place in recent years.
