Thanks for the heads up on the Vanos seals. I will dble check but I think the whole cooling system, has been take car of - Radiator, hoses, thermostat, water pump, in addition to power steering hoses. I'll just need to confirm the expansion tank. Most of that was just done this past month in addition to new tires 8k ago - new front rotors, pads and sensors all around also all replaced this month.

I will look into the Vanos seals and do them myself as well as what ever I can. I've maintained my 84' Mercedes 240D - but its a piece of cake to work on and never breaks down. Tough part is I don't have a garage and driveway in LA. Back home a massive driveway and 4 car garage!

What manual do you use - Bentley?

I'll find out friday and post pics if I end up going thru with the sale.

LA is in a panic we might have a few days of rain and 50 degree weather - its a hoot!

Cheers- Colin
