I bet that you felt good seeing your car on video.
It looks really nice, although the seats aren't my preference.

We need to get them out and about more often !



By the way, did your mum decide to buy a new camera ?

yeh seats already in bud, not looking forward to them breaking to the point theyre unusable, they have the multi ajustments on them and the knob has broke clean off both seats so i cant recline them forward or back, but the lumbar support is still there, but i can still unlatch them so ppl can get in the back which is nice, but i think they are out an ep3 which is good.
very huggy and comfy and im 6 foot 2 nearly and 20 stone so,
those led rear lights are cool at night but i imagine barely visible during the day.
yes indeed haha. tho thanks to wheeler dealers people kinda know what these cars are now frown

The early models had the "boomerang" lights, the later ones had the more non-descript rear lights

mooney did you buy the car with the seats already in or did you install them yourself?

I guess they are supportive/comfortable if they are Recaros...

The "angel-eye" rear lights were a bit of a fashion several years back, though you don't hear of owners doing that mod so much these days.

At least the video-maker knew what it was laugh

Hopefully the adventures I intend to take mine on when it's 'complete' will tick the high octane stories box!

This forum is not Strictly come dancing and love island, it's more like time team (for people who like Beards and soil :-) )
If you are after high octane tuning stories and thrills you may be disappointed. We all did that 20 years ago and now the discerning coupe owner is looking more at originality and longevity (mostly, many are still in a high state of tune)

But as others have said the info is in here somewhere or someone will answer eventually.
You won't get this amount of info anywhere else.

My own is due a full chassis upward full rebuild and restore and I know if this forum was not here I would not be able to do it myself.

Have a nice day.

I love these, although not so much the later 'boomerang' rear light model, I prefer the earlier model. I had a snoop around the owners club a few years ago and a thread on piston heads. From what I remember the manual model is the better choice, the flappy paddle wears its clutch out and is expensive to repair. I think if you are an enthusiast a lot of jobs are possible providing you are prepared to invest time in learning, bit like the coupe in that respect and the electronic technology is on the cusp of going to excess like it is now.

When looking for my Coupe I met a seller that had just bought one, hence the coupe sale. It struck me as being a small vehicle which I like and appeared well made, I was impressed - it is a logical move from a coupe.

I saw this one recently, its a Spider in red and I prefer a FHC in blue but I could not help feeling tempted for a few seconds.

It may be quiet compared with some forums but it's the quality of the replies that counts. I'm new to both coupe ownership and this forum, so far been very happy with the responses and advice received. As has been already mentioned we must remember there are a lot fewer cars, and therefore owners, than there was at one time.

The entire scene has moved on in the last couple of years. Many of the cars aren't the daily drivers they once were. And of the few cars left the owners generally are preserving the value of their cars best they can. This often involves bills into thousands. And when you're spending that money you're not going to be changing oils and servicing yourself. So sadly there isn't going to be somebody on here waiting to answer questions as owners capable of doing that are far less these days


A very perceptive statement Szkom and sums up my situation exactly though I rarely contributed on the technical front. There's approx 660 coupes now left on the road and about a third are paid up forum members. This is a niche club by any standard so it's unsurprising it's not a hive of activity that some may expect.

I have always been tempted with this brand like in my younger days of aspiring to Alfa’s.

Seems the £10k to £20k bracket has 3200GT, 4200 and some higher mileage GranTourismo in the offering these days.

I always liked the 3200GT with the manual box with the reviews I read at the time years ago, but what peoples thoughts on these models other than the running costs which will not be on par with Fiat and Alfa’s?
