A lot of people asked me what to check for when buying a 924 or 944. Off course like with every car you should check the
interior and exterior for damage and wear. That's why these questions where mainly about the engine and other mechanical parts.
On this page I have created a checklist that contains what to check when buying a 924/944 and how worse it is.
|Check||How ?||Description||Cause||Is it worse ?|
