Thanks for the lovely comments,here's some info
Pre delivery check at Buchloe on 6/2/2002
First owner purchased through Sytner Sheffield 24/1/2003
2nd owner 6/6/2006
3rd owner 05/2012
Myself 02/2014
In the service book it has six stamps from Sytner and Four Indipendents.
As purchased as a car to cherish and restore I've covered just 6,000 miles in three years but carry out oil change every year. Total mileage of just 89,700
It took me quite a while to find the specifications and colour combo I liked but finally 223 ticked all the boxes .
My goal was to try and bring 223 back to as new as possible,so hers a brief description of work carried out so far.
Two new wings,bonnet due to signs of rust, split and poorly pained front spoiler the rest of the bodywork was a little shabby also signs of rust on the boot lid and panel below. I took the decision to have the whole car repainted and now looks amazing.
I've replaced many other exterior parts ie headlight lenses,rear boot lenses, indicators, wiper arms ,new rear badges and emblems.wheels refurbished at Lepsons and new centre badges.
The lotus white interior has all been refinished and contrasting with the ink blue carpeting looks stunning and I just love the original Motorola phone which actually works ha ha. Hope this is enough info for you I could go on and on LOL Thanks[img]http://theALPINAregister.com/forums/use ... 0381_1.jpg[/img][img]http://theALPINAregister.com/forums/use ... 0460_1.jpg[/img][img]http://theALPINAregister.com/forums/use ... 0379_1.jpg[/img][img]http://theALPINAregister.com/forums/use ... 0541_1.jpg[/img][img]http://theALPINAregister.com/forums/use ... 0450_1.jpg[/img]

Cheers good history as well and to see a good resto job on it
I see on another thread your looking at suspension would be good to go all original since you have kept it original
