1997 850 Sedan n/a Black.

I have brought another to the crew.

The price was right, it runs and drives well.

I am only seeing clear coat issues at this point.

I will have to read some codes, but judging from a test drive, I believe the issues may be found quickly.

My friends van had broken down so I gave her this one. I haven't had a chance to thoroughly go through it yet, but she hasn't had any problems over the winter.
Happy to hear that. I will go over it when I can.

It is working well for her so far.
No issues, but it will need a PCV run through.
I have not yet had a chance to run codes and clear lights. She needed to use it immediately.

She had lost the drivers headlight wiper in a car wash. I have more in storage.
I told her, "No more automated car washes."

I did the brakes on all four corners last week. New rotors and pads.
Had to replace rear calipers, they were rusted solid. There was more rust on these than my '93 Sedan when I got it.
Still need to run codes.
I'm beginning to juggle work between the of the cars so they don't get lonely.

Also trying not to buy any more rescues at this point.
