Umm... What kind of ecu FCs have? I mean, can fault codes or something like that checked?

Also, whats best option for pickyback ecu?

Ok, seems like only problem in this car is that windscreen wipers arent working way they should. Middle speed wont work..

Also,  right doors power window is abit slow. Ground error?

I think I will get this car...

Jarno the wiper issue is a common one and is usually just a case of swapping out the micro relays within the switch.......... there's a few write ups on the procedure. I've relays at work waiting to be soldered in the orange cars switch as it's the same issue, so can post the numbers if required.
The window can be as simple as a good spray of silicon on the seals and grease the runners as they dry out over time, without checking the car though that's a educated guess rather than certainty.

Thanks sir :) Yes, I just read from somewhere that its quite common. Cars owner said that its been like that since he purchased it. However, I dont see this being issue, cause I dont plan to drive this car in the rain...

True, dont know for sure what wrong with it. I dont think its anything bad tho...

Well, its and old car, and my understanding is that FCs have some electrical issues.

Just got more info about her. And few picks. Damn she is beautiful.  :love4:

So, lets talk about FCs OMP! Is it as reliable than in other REs?  ;) What should I check?
Im really leaning towards Premix too. Unnessecary?

Few days ago I said to that cars owner that I will take her. Cant wait, Ill get it 2nd of June! :great: :love4:

And funny thing happened. Car is based at Kuusamo and that is 756km north from me. I said as an joke that he should bring it to me. He agree to drive it to Turku, only 127km from me in west. He said that he love road trip and he is going to his friends birthday anyways...

The S5 TII OMP is electronic & if not  working shuts down the Turbo etc.
I have mine  & I premix with Synth 2 Stroke (Stihl 4 Mix) @ 350 - 1 on both FB & FC.

Yeah, Im so frickin happy :D

Yes he is. He loves to take her in to long road trips, and she has never failed him...

As I said car is absolutely stunning condition. Even thou engine has 90k km on it, it works like a charm...

Well, because of that 90k km on clock, I think Ill premix, just to be sure, and to get that engine maybe a longer life...

Although if it goes, I can always ask Kevs advice and parts for ridicilous fast FC Vert build...  ;) :D
