Hy.

I am planing to buy a 1992 Turbo R. It is low milage 55000km and was imported from Japan. Left side steering. Since it is my first Bentley, I was hoping to hear some opinions from experienced members and what it could be worth. Thank you!

The devil is in the details...or lack of them. Biggest problem with all these cars is lack of regular maintenance and storing for long periods of time. It's best to find a tech who is familiar with the car and KNOWS the weak points, it's well worth the small cost up front. I hope you realize that Turbo cars face another dilemma with head gasket issues, and with a heavy foot you may be on borrowed time.

No service history. Only japanese car documents.
Do you have access to the car or only in pictures?

Kindly,
Stephen

Hi!
You'll probably have trouble finding a specialist mechanic in Norway, so I'd recommend getting very familiar with the car and DIY as much as possible.

I bought mine, also with very little history, about a year ago, and have had to do quite a bit:

  • Air-conditioning not working, new compressor fixed that.
  • Spheres replaced front and rear
  • Major Service done
  • Seat memory fixed
  • Cruise Control not working (still needs fixing)
  • TPS replaced
  • Distributor caps, rotors and belt changed
  • kickdown still needs fixing
  • Turbo boost needs fixing

The cars are very complicated, but "analogue", so count on spending a lot of time reading up on them.

But, the people on here are very knowledgeable and helpful! Same goes for the spares dealers, but parts are very expensive!

Go for it - we need more Scandinavians 😀

Thanks for the good words.
It looks great and things work, now. Only the wood on the doors need to be refreshed.

Looks like it stand a couple of years in garage not used. Look at SZ cars forum for typical problems with cars that stand a lot of time.
Anyway, Japan market is a big "pro" point. I know a lot of european cars from Japan. They are not problem free, but are usually quite good maintained (a lot better than in USA) and corrosion free.
