It's a terrible car, they are nothing but trouble! Just give me the phone number of your friend and let me deal with the problems, especially if it is a 5 speed! The trouble is you cannot get the grin off your face as you go through an S-turn. The other problem is the smug smile when you go up hills in the winter that leave four-wheel drives spinning their wheels. Many classic 900s go past 300,000 miles, so you would be looking hard for an excuse to buy another car for more than a few years.
