Abarth Stilo Schumacher GP No 17

Hi All,

I am new to the forum and this is my first thread that I have posted.

I have seen a lovely looking Abarth Stilo Schumacher GP No 17 listed on eBay are these cars as good as they say and what should I look for to be sure not to get stung.

I also drive a Doblo Cargo that I love to bits, such a useful van.

Re: Abarth Stilo Schumacher GP No 17

I'm no expert and there are experts on here but I've had a GP numerically close to this since 2010 and it's never missed a beat. Basically a very reliable daily driver since my Tipo rusted to pieces. Clutch fluid seems to collect air if its left alone for long periods buts that's all. Touchwood. Never too sure about ebay listings with private bids.

Quite a few 2.4 stilos have had bottom end failure at relatively low mileage (less than 100k), so you'd need to listen for knocking when cold. If possible you should check oil pressure. Some seem bullet proof others other just go it seems. Can anyone shed any light on what the issue is there and how to prevent it?

Suspension components can be expensive as some of them are specific to the Schumacher.

I saw a Schumacher GP that went on eBay for 600 a few weeks ago :-o

Re: Abarth Stilo Schumacher GP No 17

Hi,

Thanks to you both, I have seen two Schumacher's on Auto Trader but they are not GP's, they are a lot more money and much higher limited numbers neither do they look anywhere near as bright as this one.

I am really taken by the look of this car and with it being so individual so I suppose your advice is to pay few quid to have an AA inspection? thanks again and keep the advice coming.

Has anyone got a lower number than this one?

No 17 was previously owned by forum member Bruders 338. https://www.fiatforum.com/stilo/6888...umacher-8.html

You could search his previous posts for some history of the car.

Bit of an epic thread revival but I'm glad you're keeping you Schumacher going. Hope you're enjoying it and it's treating you well.
