    I am looking in to buying a 1988 944 turbo. This current one that I have in mind has 160,000km.

    What should I look for as problem areas on this car? So far I only know of the timing belt issue, but thats it. Anything specific that could potential cause major problems?

    TIming belt changes are extremely important
    Any and all service history is very important too
