Cool car, you always see the best stuff on mobile. Bought my first type 82
off, immaculate GLS for DM 200.

Oooooh, I love that car, would make a nice pair with my type 82...
It would also get me in a lot of trouble with my apartement neighbours.  :-)

BTW- did a 80 km trip in my new acquisition tonight, it runs great!
Acceleration is pretty good, it's nice and quiet at 100 km/h (gets kinda
noisy above that, though), the autobox changes up and down smoothly and it
starts fine.
The clock is dead, gotta fix one door switch for the courtesy light, there
is a slight smell of petrol in the trunk (could be the rubber cover around
the filling spout) and the trip meter is intermittent. Otherwise it's fine,
it's got a great heater and even an intermittent setting for the wipers!

Regards, Tom
