Problems

Bodywork
Rear arches starting to get an attack of the tin worm.

Engine
The engine was rebuilt at 147,000 miles (previous owner) but no problems at all yet (now done 185000 miles).

Gearbox
Has a little whine, but have been told it's nothing serious by gearbox specialist.

Other
The exhaust fell off at 150000 miles. Use a specalist for servicing and repairs to keep costs low.
