Re: 155 2.0 16v wideboy?

Hi Kev, welcome to AO, yup, there is such thing as a widebody, means its got the wider arches as you say as well as a wider front track and different rear arches. They were made from 1995 onwards.

Definately get all the belts and tensioners done, perhaps the variator too if i sounds like a diesal on startup, should be able to get it all done for £400 all in if you shop around, where you from?
