Introducing my £295 850!

Post  seanhath on Tue Dec 24, 2013 8:06 am

Hello everyone!
I've just taken the plunge and bought a 1995 850 2.4 GLT with 174K on the clock and a wad of S/H.
It has some issues, which is why it was only £295. The engine (sometimes) struggles to idle and dies, on the move it stutters and lurches, and the alternator is knackered.
I've got just about enough knowledge to tackle these issues myself - get the old girl through an MOT and on the road (all things going to plan) by February.

Wish me luck - and please be patient with my stupid questions!

Hi, I'm in the South East London / Kent neck of the woods.
I've been even luckier - I changed the MAF sensor, plugs, leads, oil, and filters and she's running beautifully!
Even managed a fresh MOT with no advisories Smile

I've not thought much about changing or modifying anything......but I do love the T5 Pegasus alloys!
