Hello all

I'm new here, but have been looking for a Coupe for a while now. I'm pretty poor at the restoration thing (I had a Lancia Montecarlo, which I was lucky to get rid of - nice looking, but an absolute nail), so looking for a pristine one and also some recommendations of garages in the Oxfordshire area that could service/maintain it for me. I've seen this advertised...

Looks nice etc, but seems a bit pricey to me, and would also prefer a sliver/grey one.

The old man had an 80 Sport and an 80 Quattro in the 80's and sound of the engine was just awesome.

Anyhow, I intend to use it for a daily commute, so any advice etc would be most appreciated

cheers

These cars are getting old now.

Running it as a daily as your only car is not ideal but could work. Just make sure you're handy with the spanners and keep spares.

I prefer the facelift models.

I wouldn't pay that money for one.

This would probably be a better bet
