All is clear. I consider myself as extremely practical. That's why I am not afraid of old cars as i should most probably be. I can manage my y. 92 W140 Mercedes S class for last 14 years on my own and the car is even better now as it was on a day of purchase. Ok, I know that RR is "not a car" but THE CAR.Sorry to sound the alarm, but this forum and many others are witness to this behavior, so I just wanted to enlighten you.
that is my main inhibition ... I know that headlights will not be the main problem. All this "to be or not to be" is more and more spiritual. For instance I do not have any fear if anything in my W140 breaks. I am 100% sure that i will fix it. Like rear differential recently. I have paid 1250 eur for a brand new one (re-manufactured by MB) and it was on a car in the same day. In contrast, every breakdown or trouble in RR car seems (sounds) like the end of the world now .If you buy the car, I bet the headlights issue will not be the top of your priorities
I know that. 1988 and 1989 are the right ones for me. I can ask the guy to lift the car at my first visit. What exactly to check then beside the eventual rust on the floor?1989 was a really good year to buy as it's fuel injection and not active ride.
That's what I want to hear! What else?On your test drive, listen to the rear, whine on coast or under power. They are known to whine since the Shadows.
You are spot on."to be or not to be" is more and more spiritual....
