Some advice please?

Postby Rubyoptics » Thu Nov 09, 2017 6:01 pm

Hi all,

As i said in my introduction post, i'm strongly considering purchasing a CC. Before I take the plunge however, I was wondering if you folks could offer me a bit of informed advice!

1 - How much of a premium should I pay over a base model (condition etc being equal ) for a 'special edition' such as the Roland Garros?

2 - Would anyone be able to supply the link for the service manual? I have downloaded the owners manual from a link here (thank you very much!) but can't seem to find the link for the service manual?

3 - How easy is it to carry out basic maintenance such as oil and filter changes?

Many thanks for any help or advice you can give me! Also, if you think there is anything else i should know before purchasing (i have read the great buyers guide here on this forum) then I would reatfully accept your advice.

Thanks!

There is no official printed service manual, only a database of parts and repair procedures known as the Service Box, and wiring diagrams known as the SEDRE. They are comprehensive and cover all models. Best obtained here.

Scroll down to the priced list - do not click the blue boxes. It does not matter which model you click - you get the full database for all models listed.

I did post a buyer guide on here that you might want to look at.
Cheers Col.

So...I took the plunge and am now the very proud owner of a mint 2003 2.0 206 cc! Previous owner was a very careful father who bought it for his son, so Bluetooth hands-free stereo fitted, new rest suspension, new brakes and pads, new race clutch, new gearbox etc etc etc! Also in electric blue which looks fantastic! Winter tyres ordered and having a blast! Thanks all for this great store of knowledge which helped so much with making my choice.
