The next one on my list was again a black 400i but a phase 2 with automatic. It was on my radar for a while and this one was not far away from where I live. In fact it’s the same one as listed in the top gear article:
Judging by the date it had been for sale for the past two years. The company who had it for sale was specialized in VW vans: http://www.europeancollectables.nl/
I just did a quick search and found this old website which still has it on display:
So on a saturday afternoon I decided to make a quick tour to visit this 400 without making an appointment. On arrival it appeared nobody was around but not much later I discovered someone. The owner was on holiday and the guy told me the 400 was sold last week and exported to Czech. Although the 400i phase 2 isn’t my favourite I was interested to see it though, just bad luck. Next one please.
