Marea 20v HLX saloon

Here is my Marea saloon that I picked up for a complete bargain
she was abit unloved by the previous owner who had the car since new
she has only done 82,000 miles and rust free,

Future plans :

paint correction
engine cleaning
Belts
keeping the car as Fiat intended

First time I saw here











Here intake pipes were butchered so she would roar



Turbo Badge at the rear (and V8 Turbo badges on the wings)



Soo got her home and a quick clean and some parts replaced with some spares that I had :

New inlet hoses pre MAF
New K&N panel Filter with a new airbox lid
Bosch MAF
Air intake ducting
new battery tray


my old Wagon (that my son owns now)



Have had the Weekend "Star" Wheels Refurbed by my son and fitted








Will be updating as and when new bit and

Re: Marea 20v HLX saloon

Nice to see a saloon version getting the TLC it deserves

I once owned a silver 20v ELX and pound for pound it was probably one of the best car I've owned. It was silky smooth fast and sounded glorious plus it was spacious too. I sold it when I bought a house wrongly thinking that I wouldn't be able to afford to run it however on reflection I could of so it became the "one I let go".

Keep up the good work

Re: Marea 20v HLX saloon

That's the thing with mine. I've got the saloon which is only a 1.6 and the weekend hlx130 I was thinking of breaking the saloon and stripping back the good chassis parts to fit to my rusting coupe. But it's really too good to break.
But it's only a 1.6sx so it's gutless and has a rank beige interior. Even the dash is beige.

Re: Marea 20v HLX saloon

Looking really good now (better in daylight?), hopefully it's mechanically sorted now.

You should enjoy driving now it as much as looking at it.

Re: Marea 20v HLX saloon

Looking great, but I think a Red cam-cover would finish the engine bay nicely...
