Indeed, heading in that direction.
Thanks for asking, Jean. I asked a dealer form belgium to test the car (AC, brakes, any visible dent), I am sure he can be done in 5 -6 minutes. he is busy or maybe he forgot. I decided to wait because I really do not have enough courage to drive 12 hours without a break into one direction ... to be disappointed. Somehow I am putting all puzzles together. So I am putting together your thoughts, ideas and comments which can be presented in pairs (contra dictionary statements) here:Samo, you have yet seen a number of bad, the right one is coming ....
Are you on your way on your road to find the one waitin g for you or still talking and thinking ?
Check also Bentley specialists, sometime you can find interesting car with some previous information and indeed a sort of warranty
This is one specialist, not so terribly far away from me:This is good advice. The specialists will know the cars and owners around you, the work done and whether the owner is interested in selling. They would want to retain the business and will likely be objective.
Found it, thanks. So to replace a brake disc one must remove the hub. I have read only for the rear discs, I guess for front ones is similar. If I buy a 700 Nm torque wrench and if my IQ is above 80, am I capable to replace brake discs, in theory if I can read technical english?Workshop manuals can be downloaded here :
Do not read the section about rear discs/bearings...
What are people doing with their fat asses in these car, so the cars with 50k km on a clock look like they have over 2 or 3 million kilometers? Is leather in RR cars actually much worse than leather in MB S class? Hard to believe after reading so much about the superiority of RR leather. is there any secret which I do not know or people are just extremely careless?
i think it is not the weight which matters. Some people can ruin car's interior in 2 years, some people can drive their cars for decades and there is almost no sign of wear. i think slackness is the answer. and most probably the pH factor of the skin. i know from guitars that some people ruin guitars in couple of months, some of them make a scratch or two in 10 years. some people with "inproper" (unhealthy) pH factor of the skin ruin strings after several hours of playing. i guess leather is sensitive material.
- If it's a US car, people tend to weigh more here compared to Europe (I certainly have since I moved here 20 years ago).
- Nice material does not necessarily translate to durable material. I suspect that polyester seats in an old 1978 Datsun 120Y will still look as crap as they did when they were brand spanking new, while full leather interiors in a Jaguar or Porsche 928 have disintegrated many years ago
- Cars get clocked
You will also need a 70 tons press and a few special tools.Found it, thanks. So to replace a brake disc one must remove the hub.

I actually just look quickly into section J (final drive). So you say that rear brake disc cannot be replaced without a 70 ton press?You will also need a 70 tons press and a few special tools.
Front discs are closer to "normal".
