New Bosch fuel pump.
New fuel filter and fuel lines.
Various lines and hoses.
New exhaust.
Factory fog lights replaced by PIAA units up front with removable caps.

Vinyl on the back arm rests has started to stretch a bit and fuel gauge is not working.

This RS runs, drives, stops and handles like it should. It starts right up and is a true blast to drive. Extremely rare car in the US. Collector quality ready for its new owner to appreciate. Comes with original owner’s manual, original jack, set of floor mats and safety triangle.
