Thanks for that, nice little read!  [-/

Does anybody know the production figures per model? I understand 4.6 million were made (i think?) but how many of those were the BIS model? Is the BIS rarer?

Check this site to find which is the rarest. http://howmanyleft.co.uk/

I reckon a high percentage of the 274 126 Bis on SORN will never see the light of day.

Did the BIS actually go sale in the uk in 1987? I can't find any rhd 1987 BIS. I know the aircooleds were supposedly produced from 1972, but didn't really go on sale until 1973.

Just found this (scroll down quite a way), it states the uk sales brochure was dated january 1988.

Was tempted by a rebel a while back  :D. The BIS doesn't have synchromesh on first.

Hey guys, this topic was kind of what I'm looking for but I'm also hoping for an idea of weak points to look out for when inspecting a car (certain areas commonly rusted through, any signs of common engine faults etc) Can anyone advise or point me in the right direction? If it helps I'm set on bringing in a 126p from Poland  8)

Sorry if this is staring me in the face on another thread, i had a look first, promise  ;D

Practical classics did a buyers guide a couple of years ago, don't know if anyone could scan it in. Think my scanner is dead. That is what I used to buy mine with.

It's Polish, they stopped making them in Italy in 1979. I tend to double clutch throughout, don't know if it is needed on 2,3,4.
