The girl's B3

Post by benno3231 » Apr Fri 18, 2014 2:43 pm

Just picked this up for the girlfriend. its a 16v manual with 140k. supposedly had a new clutch put in a few years ago. got some issues though:

needs tune up pretty bad its slow as all hell

I will probably replace the timing belt even though he did it a few years ago

brakes are bad

sunroof and rear wiper don't work

passenger window doesn't work

and its super dirty inside....

more to come soon!

Cool!
B3s with valvers aint fast :) Even with cams, chip and exhaust they dont move reel well. The taller transmission seems to make em feel slow too.
It's not how fast you go. It's how well you go fast.

Must be a later 16v, with those longer roof rails. What year again?

What did you have to give for it? I was going to trade him an ipad and a couple hundred bucks.

Well, long story short it was more than the girlfriend wanted to pay but less than he wanted out of it so a good middle ground :laughing:

Does anybody have any spare B3 headlights laying around? These ones are hammered

This car is surprisingly clean! I so wish it was mine. And no worries Brandon. Enough of these cars have gotten parted over the years so I'm sure somebody has a set. I'd bet Trevor has a set in his parts dungeon.

Mike, I really appreciate you looking!
