I'm going to write here in English, because my German isn't that good yet. I will share to You my citySTROMer story, which is just began.
In February I got myself an citySTROMer. It has been abandoned for 15 years. Last owner told me that the car was taken to Latvia by some car salesman in 1997 and the car was used until batteries died. Batteries were way too expensive to change, so the car was just left by the corner. The best part is that all citySTROMer specific parts was still in place.
On the way home
And some pictures right after getting it home:
Everyone was excited about the looks of the car, so we participated in an exhibition
And then it was exhibited for a while at local dealer
When I got it back, I could finally start some work on the car. The first thing I had to do was renewing the registration of the car. Lucky there was an registration entry left in the system from 1997. and it took only few weeks to get new papers.
And the next job was to clean it.
The body has only few rust spots, where the paint had been damaged but no holes, so no welding will be required. The car itself is in very good condition, never had a crash and really looks like 44 000km car, except the interior, that has been already "upgraded" 15 years ago.
Then I started to work on electronics. Thanks to some other citySTROMer owners I got some documentation and after few months of not understanding nothing, some things started to become clearer and later this happened:
At first it was hard to understand how to drive it, but then after few laps around territory it ran pretty nice and then my battery collection in the trunk became empty.
Since that progress I have been very busy with other things, so the citySTROMer sits and waits for more progress on it.
At the moment charger is dead and also there may be a problem with fan and E-bremse works all the time, independent from the switch position.
My current plans on the car is to get all the electronics 100% working and then disassemble it and restore to factory original condition. When it will hit the roads, nobody can tell. There is a lot to do.
