So I needed a wagon to use for my mobile IT support business. I was looking at a 740 Turbo when this came up. I was hesitant at first but thought what the hell why not. I quickly gave Spac a call and before I realised I had bought it.
Picked it up today from Spac and drove it back from his to my place. It went quite well towing our bikes. It has nearly all the warning lights on in the dash and has a pretty bad miss but on a whole it goes quite well. I got it home and the first job was to give it a bit of paint love. the previous owner had a thing for scraping it against things so it has scratches that extend the entire length of the car on both sides. Luckily these were only clearcoat deep so most of them came out with a bit of polish. The roof and bonnet are faded with the clear coat bubbling. A bit of wax hydrated the damage and now its not really noticable. I havent cleaned the inside yet which is pretty crumby atm to say the least. Here are the photos I got today.

Back at mine.

All in all it seems like a pretty honest car that I can use for work and a bit of leisure. Plans are to stage 0 it and drive as is. I have the 240 for a fun car.
