    Well after 2 years of reseach - this site has been fabulous, I have finally taken delivery of a '91 348 TS.

    Excellent mechanics but some minor cosmetics required.

    1) turn off that parking light which stays on regardless of handbrake position.

    2) need to fix passenger door handle as I cannot open from the inside.

    Many more questions to follow as I learn more so watch this space.

    Congrats on the 348!

    The parking light is activated by the button on the centre console - may be stuck closed circuit if they are not turning off at all

    Are you in the UK? JKUK? :)

    Cheers

    Paul,

    Yes, I am based in Wirral (North West).

    Apologies, I meant the handbrake warning light as opposed to the parking light.

    Beautiful 348.

    I love the color top.. Has the lines of a hard top and excellent for sun worshipers all in one.

    Congrats..

    Congrats on the new car!

    With the handbrake warning light, it can be 'tricky' to release the hand brake. There is a chance that the light isn't malfunctioning, and that the brake is still engaged. Sometimes it takes me a couple of attempts to get my handbrake released. Lift up to a a point of resistance, press in thumb button, lift a little more, lower brake handle, then release thumb button.

    Have fun driving!!

    I had the same issue with the hand brake. It needs to be fully disengaged for the light to be out. It just takes that little extra lift up while holding down to button to release. This of course if their are no other problems.

    Congrattulations on getting the 348. Are you John Kelly who had e-mailed me on the 348?

    I notice you have the colour coded roof, same as mine. They are much better looking than the black roof.

    Enjoy the car. It is an exhilarating drive but a bit tricky to handle. Still manages to put a smile of my face after more than 2 years.
