That imola... :mrgreen: yes its imola, but it has NO spec at all! Not a bean! Plus, you think it may be nice but think of the work that would need doing to it in a couple of years time! - Cooling System etc etc.

@  Tuvoc : (05 February 2016 - 08:12 pm)

stunning car. Look at the service history though - 23,000 miles between services on one occasion, and 18,000 miles on another
