At first pass this is a real head turner, beautiful and unusual color. Lovely compared to the innumerable silver R129's out there. Unfortunately, most special edition models from any auto manufacturer are simply a non standard paint color and bolt on's such as wheels and badges and no performance additions. A close look at the hard top indicates a complete refinish job given the number of scratches and dents and the big paint chip and rust spot on the leading edge of the roof. If I'm wrong I'm happy to stand corrected on any of my comments. Given the defects, it certainly puts in a beautiful appearance. Love the lowered look until you drive across the drainage swale into the grocery store and scrape the front apron all up. Just have to be careful when pulling in anywhere, but love the look and I'm a careful driver when it comes to these things so a non issue for me, but not for many who aren't careful. GLWTA
The timing chain and guides were inspected and just wondering if they had ever been replaced in the past. Usually around the 100k mark the chains have stretched some and on a car this age the guides have become brittle. What was the result of the inspection and have the chain or guides been replaced in the recent past? Thanks.
Do all the power accessories such as windows, mirrors, sun roof,seats, etc., work correctly? Also does climate control modulate correctly? Thanks. Beautiful example.
