What did you need to change on your car till now?

In Germany, a lot is possible - but difficult and/or pricey. As a rule of thumb every part installed is required to have an ECE-Number, that confirms it's conformity. Some don't, such as vinyl covers etc.. Also, if you don't have an ECE-number, you need to get your car inspected. However, if you can't provide specific material data...material strength etc. to enable them making an informed decision, your request usually gets declined. Cost range from 100 to 700. thanks ^^.

I bought it with 375k, some basic stuff is replaced like alternator, springs&shocks etc.
It has the original engine&gearbox. Not sure if the clutch is original, at least no mentioning on the maintenance log of it. Sure, the car has its flaws and an overall "tired" feel to it but it runs&drives as a perfect daily commuter
