    Hi there,

    I just found out that my completely overhauld cylinderhead belongs to your car.... (I do not have the block or the gear box to your car....)

    I am intending to put it into my car - which still will take some time (approx 2-3 years). So if you are looking for an original part of your car, maybe even getting it back to matching numbers (or close to it), feel free to contact me.

    Cheers

    Stefan
