Nothing ground breaking here but I'm amazed at how the little jobs start to stack up and I wanted to keep a record, so here goes.
Bought in 2016 my car is a 2004 FL, Silver with aircon and black leather. First roadster and haven't looked back since!
It turns out I am owner number 9. The condition of the car was generally good so this didn't put me off.
A test drive revealed a slipping clutch, at which point I was ready to walk away. However, a deal was done that included two new tyres, handbrake cables, a new clutch, a year's ticket and (as it happened) 2xO2 sensors.
The history seemed to have had a 25k mile sabbatical, but it didn't seem to be burning oil and there were only a few things that I thought would need immediate attention. The history did show a recent water pump and new radiator which was a bonus.
First jobs were:
-Cleaned throttle body and removed slack from the cable.
-Toyo T1r's all round (went for 195/50/15 and 225/40/16)
-Replaced front discs and pads (old ones were...err...less than ideal)
-Oil (5w30) and filter
-Replaced gearbox oil. This was a concern as when I opened the filling plug/hole fluid came gushing out. Somehow there was between 2.5-3L in there. I'm unsure if this has led to a subsequent weeping from one of the seals (on the list of things to do).
