Hi Gang,

I will be going to look at a 1994 one owner Silvertsone tomorrow and just wanted to know if there are any easy visual ways of " definitely " telling whether or not it is an original car? It's cheap enough at £800 but . . . . what should I look for?????

cheers

Eeeeeeerrrrr check if its got the rear boot spoiler and front lower spoiler and also i think painted side skirts :confused: also check the usual things pointed out in the past for all 155`s

You could try posting the reg number and asking Wrinx nicely to check and see if its on his register(that`s if he`s recovered fom this mornings off)

The ski flap is in the middle of the back seat and folds down to allow .....ski`s to be put in the car :rolleyes: or can be used as an arm rest :D

Basically if it`s got one it aint a true Silverstone wink

Oh and it also have a 1.8 8 Valve Twinspark engine :D

Hi Frankie (me luv yoo looooong time :rolleyes: )
Silverstone thingees.....
Some of these things have been mentioned before but,

Look for the rear 3 legged spoiler.
The front splitter may not be there as they break easily.
The interior should be half "leather", actually vinyl
There are no check lights on the panel above the ashtray except for the "door open" light.
The side skirts should be coloured, although the bumpers may still be black.
They only came in red or black, so any other colour would be a bit strange.
There should be a sticker badge on the rhs of the bootlid saying "Silverstone", although these can probably still be bought somewhere.
The Silverstone is actually a very base 1.8litre 8v so only front leccy windows and maybe a sunroof.

Also check the drivers head rest moves properly. You can tilt it up and forward so your head rests on it while driving. Great for track days with a helmet as you can tilt it right back so you don't crick yer neck.

And a Silverstone should have a Momo steering wheel and gear knob.

The Silverstone steering wheel is the same non airbag wheel as fitted to other skinny body cars. It doesn't have Momo stamped on it. The gear nob (as Wrinx says) is the same leather doodah fitted to all the 155's.
