I've been looking to buy a 1991 200.  Found a relatively low mileage (89,000) 200 with two problem that I did not think existed to any great degree for 1991.  Number 1 problem was/is this car has replaced 3 ECUs since the car was new. Apparently, all kinds of warnings just light up for no reason and according to the mechanics that worked on this car--'just can't figure the problem'--so replace.  Second problem--according to owner has had brakes 'replaced' 3 times since new.  3 times??? Sounds a bit much to me---Anyway, is this car cursed?  Would it be prudent to stay away from this car and move on to others (with may be more miles) or consider for purchase and may be find someone who can figure these problems----(As an Alfa Romeo nut---some Alfa members always said some cars just out from the factory 'wrong')  Could this be a 'wrong' 200??
