ebay banger buyer at large

Hi,

I bought a 155 1.8 TS of ebay at the weekend... and for everyone who looked and knew/thought better thanks! You may yet have the last laugh however I'm one happy little camper right now.

I only want it for a one trip in the summer and my mates convinced a ratty old b reg golf gti will be so much better... please back me up on this one guys.

So from what I've been led to believe I can now lay claim to the title of petrol head. Apparently the Fords, VWs, Suzuki, Renaults and odds and sods i've owned in the past don't cut it for that one.

So whilst the car looks and seems to run well (ie it's pretty straight, no odd tyre wear and the panel gaps are al;l pretty true) I know sweet FA about these things so if anyone's got any pointers for me to look out for it'd be much apprciated.

And before you say anything I know it's an 8v not a 16v... admittedly thanks to you guys and once it was already on my drive way... D'Oh!
But hey what can you do for a 100...

Cheers

JP

Re: ebay banger buyer at large

Your not going on that buy a banger rally thing are you to italy?

Good luck if you are

Someone in the AROC bought a 164 with exactly the same thought and it did him proud.
