I had forgotten about the Umweltzonen. mmmmm... That's not so good. I had intended to fit the car with a Cat. Perhaps that will be enough to give it a green sticker. I think I should go next door to Dekra and speak to them

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

even if you fit a catalyst, it means in this case that is only an 'uncontrolled' one !? the '85 fuel injection/engine control was not designed to handle an modern fuel-injection system (at least, this is my guess) ..with all its refinement. So you will not get an different emission-class 'number tag' in the car documents, identifying it as an Euro 1/2/3 or whatever... .

If you fit an modern,fully programmable engine-control, you will end up with homologation requirements to verify its control-quality. Do you think it is worth it to go this way :whistle:

That's why we say: keep it simple, without notable differences or modifications -even if the inspectors don't know much about the Esprit series. If it comes to emission classifications everyone of those guys needs to look closer!

Hiya John

Wow, that's a surprise. Someone actually asking about the Babe :-)

I finished it and she got sold to a real enthusiast in Belgium who will finish where I have left off.

Once we had our second daughter, I hardly drove her and also due the my workload in the company my days behind the wheel were counted.

If you PM me, I can send you the email of the buyer so you can follow up

It is really hard to combine work and pleasure if you are self employed with a family so eventually there was only one car left that could do it all.
