well thanks, Phil.

it just so happens that before our dollar took the recent plunge, i bought a 328GTB from the UK. One of only 123 RHD 328GTBs made....so I'm told...can someone confirm?

It's also the best of them all, being the last of the series '89MY with ABS, anti-dive and bilstein shocks!!

It's now landed, complied and roadworthied and came in RIGHT ON BUDGET. (no surprise to me)

I can't (won't)  comment any more on the whole thing right now, but photos and more informationn to follow soon.

One thing for sure, though, is that if i were to do it today, it would cost almost 10% more!......but THAT was luck, not planning.



I love my car. Buy your own

Define "best" of them all.

I've driven many examples of all the variants, and I find the anti dive/bilstein cars to be a negative step in handling compared to the earlier (308 style) suspension cars. The later ones are stiffer and less forgiving even when on fresh correct tyres, and as the tyres get old and hard, or if the wrong "N" rated tyre is used, they can be down right dangerous.

The antidive design was a step towards 348 suspesnion design... which isn't all that good, to be frank.

They're still bloody lovely though. Don't get me wrong. I just prefer the drive of a pre 89 model.

Is it registered now too? All done and on the road?

I think PP really means this, no comment means no comment. Not yet anyway.  ;)
