Re: 2.8 orinoco

We bought our 2.8 in Aug 2010 for £4200 and it was a struggle to get the seller to drop from £4500.
Our 1.9 we bought in May 2012 for £2100 mainly for the hardtop and fitting kit.
Our other 1.9 we won at auction in April this year for £930, the seller didn't realise what he was selling :D

They were manufactured for one year only 1998 - 1999 in engines 1.9 and 2.8

Hi Orinoco

Are the fog light plastic covers to fit your 2.8, if so I think you will find the 1.9 are a different size, larger.
