Both high maintenance compared to 360 or 328 IMO.



Disagree on the Esprit - haven't found it to be high maintenance.



And way to burst the bubble re 355!!!    :?

oh come ON... you've had to rebuild the thing and haven't even driven it!

A 355 of same age/mileage as the Esprit would be better than it!

Have you had Paul give you a list yet?

355's are great cars when they're right, and worth having, but quality they ain't.

The noise is the thing that gets you every time :thumbsup:, but they do need regular TLC. More so than 360.

I have so driven it!!!!


Anyway:

1 - any exotic can be "let go"
2 - I knew it was "let go" - so was prepared to do the work
3 - it was the only way to get one
4 - even if I could find a good one it still wouldn't have been as good as mine for the money I spent - Ask Paul(and Andrecorp)
5 - Paul's list was not too bad. Just service items and that's about it.

Still damn good bang for your bucks, IMHO!!!   :thumbsup:

yeah, but you're not paying yourself to do all that work

if you DID pay someone to do what you've had to do... it would be ugly....

it's easy to think "i'll do it myself", but time is money... you COULD have sold elsewhere.

perhaps, I'm just jealous 'cos I don't get any

ask your wife/kids... that's what matters to me! (mine, not yours ;))

If I'd spent XXX hours fixing up my own car outside work hours I'd have missed SO much family stuff...

That is why the hours were spread over more than 9 months. 



Anyway, you haven't got to the stage were your missus sends you to the shed for some peace.    :doh:
