fredej's silver grey 3.0si coupé

Post by fredej » Thu Jan 03, 2019 1:25 pm

Hello everyone!

My car is a Silver Grey 2006 3.0si Coupé with 76k km (47k miles).
It is completely original and spec’ed what in UK would be a Sport model. I don’t think there were SE or Sport trim levels for the Swedish market.

The option list includes M-sport chassis, black interior with M-sport seats and steering wheel, style 202 wheels, HiFi and xenon.

It's a fun car with a great engine!
It does have a harsh ride on bumpy roads. Unfortunately there is plenty of bad roads in my area.

The car currently has Bridgestone run-flat tires. Hopefully changing those to regular tires will help for a less crashy ride. I plan to change to something like PS4 or Goodyear Eagle F1 sometime next season.

The car is a summer/weekend toy and currently in the garage on a battery tender waiting for spring.

I’m located in Gothenburg, Sweden.

I will use this thread to post some of my favorite photos from last year while I wait for spring to arrive.
Only 3 months to go until it's time to :driving:
