Advice re 1998 C70 Coupe GT T5 purchase

Hi,

I've seen a very nice C70 for sale with 72,000 miles on the clock and FSH. I
have test driven the car and it does go like a rocket!!!! scarily so!!

I was just wondering if there is anything I should be looking out for,
mechanical or cosmetic etc as there aren't many posts regarding these cars
on this newsgroup.

TIA

Phil

There aren't many posts about the C70 because not many were sold.
Everything that you can't see (drivetrain, suspension, brakes etc.) is
the same as in the more common S/V70. Everything else is different but
similar, except the window regulators which are a different design and
somewhat fragile. And from what I hear, the convertible top is a
nightmare.
