Just thought I'd show you a few photos of my Barchetta Riviera.

Still haven't got used to the idea of strangers in the street shouting out "nice car mate" when I drive by!

She's a beauty. How long have you had her?

I've had her just since November last year. She is in first class condition and unmodified. Spent a bit of time and a little money on her, servicing, timing belt, rear bearings and improving a few bits and pieces which needed a little TLC. She is now running extremely well and is kept garaged (dry). Only going to use her on sunny days as she is a spare car bought just for that purpose. She is a little pampered to say the least!!

Wish I had the criss-cross leather seats in black. Your B is in good shape

Re: Black Beauty

Hi, I have the same beautiful car, but I also have an engine problem. When I release accelerator pedal, the engine turns off. In the workshop they told me "MAF sensor", but I doubt that this car has such thing, because I can't find it anywhere. Any ideas? (barchetta 2003)
Thanks

Re: Black Beauty

sure it has. on a 2003 model is it found next to the butterfly valve.

But that won't pe the problem. Please look into the ICV (idle control valve). It's also situated on the butterfly valve. Take if off, demantle it and give it a good brake cleaner clean. Otherwise you could buy a replacement for it.
