Head over to www.205gtidrivers.com

Main thing is to remember the Mi16 is quite an old engine now, if it's been angled (sometimes they were tilted when fitted to avoid chopping and re-welding the exhaust manifold) then they can suffer oil starvation and big end failure.

If it's been fitted properly you shouldn't have much trouble, the bodywork itself really is quite good when it comes to rust etc, i've had 3 of them and never had a rotten one.
