Own­ing a 928 S4

Classic Cars (UK) - - The Big Test -

‘This is the car I had on my wall as a teenager,’ says Vince Dal­limore. ‘Then you get old and fat, with spare money.’

‘I now have three 928s – the others are an 1987 car and a 1986 S2 that’s in restora­tion. I spot­ted this one in the club mag, just a tiny ad but it screamed “man­ual!” so it jumped out at me. There were only 38 UK man­ual S4s, so I made the trek from Beaulieu to Liver­pool and bought it.

‘I’ve put orig­i­nal D90 al­loys on as I pre­fer them. It has patina but thank­fully hasn’t been messed with. It also has the full leather trim that was a £6000 op­tion when it was new.

‘I spent £1500 on catch-up main­te­nance – the pre­vi­ous owner had it for 19 years but was strug­gling with up­keep. I bud­get £1000-£1500 a year to run it, plus £700 when it needs a cam­belt, which is due every five years at most.
