Hi David and Naki,

I just thought its your car David, sorry for misunderstanding you....

Here is the reply from the seller: "it sort of looses power then when the revs pick up off she goes. Starts and idles well. Believed to be a clogged fuel injector. Sorry car must go as space limited."

I think I have to let it go, its to complicated for me to arrange a pick up after auction and by the way I have bought my self a very cheap and scruffy LHD 1992 3.2 manual with an Arden emblem on the boot, I don't know if its a Arden or what is Arden yet but I have a manual :D
This way I can buy just about any thing now but a very cheap 4 liter X300 is high on the list ;)

No, I bought this here in Sweden just some 50 km from my home, it was imported to Sweden back in 2000 but it has been of the road for about ten years now so its in a very rough condition. The seller told me its got a new clutch kit and its been lowered with a spring kit and new shock absorbers but I think its been lowered by Arden first because its very low, I understand that Arden lowered their cars by modifying the spring seats but i don't know if this is the case with my car.

They look like they could be Arden wheels too.

The alloys are marked Momo but I don't know if they are special Arden Momos?

am not sure this is a Genuine Arden conversion? based on a badge, wheels and lowered suspension. i think most of the arden 40s must have been full spec conversions? do you have any supporting paperwork to go with it.
beside this though you found a manual 40, so thats a result all round

Im not sure about it being an Arden either but I think that the level of conversion by Arden was set by the customer, he got what he ordered but Im not sure about that either.
I got a document from TÜV about approval of using the leaper that Arden sold and installed.
We will see what I find when I get under the car, at the moment my garage is stuffed with motorcycles :D
