Is that your mate with the Quattroporte, by any chance??!



Yes, hes also very recently bought a 159 2.4 , 2008, bought it with 60k on the clock but timing belt snapped, engine bust, for 700.

He opened her up and the belt hadn't snapped but the tensioner slackened off , so timing had jumped a few , enough for valve impact, but the rockers are designed to fracture, so hes replaced a few rockers, new belt, and shes back on the road , 3k valuation!!
