Just showing off the new S2 Turbo to my Mum, when I switched the lights on the off side headlamp refused to pop up, although the light inside did turn on. After a couple of lights on/off the headlamp did come up, but now refuses to go down. Both lamps work fine, it's just that one wants to stay out day and night now.

although the underhood relay panel is common, I'd check your headlamp bulbs first, these are cheaper than the fuse box. The daytime running lights work off the high beam circuit, thus, a blown highbeam bulb could be the culprit, the fusebox solution was more common on 2001 and up modles, although it's a definite possibility.
if the performance is the same but no kick when the revs start to rise, it could be the internals of the turbo are worn out, have you had abnormal whistling from the turbo which indicate worn bearings, turbo's last around 100,000 miles before having to be rebuilt, the turbine wears out eventualy as well as the bearings
Lucasia, please know that if you purchase this car, you will have more fun than you know. Things that you need to know before buying one can be found here: http://wikilec.9600.org/index.php/Buyers_guide
This will help you immensely. Although this car is fun, it can be quite expensive to repair. There are lots of parts that cross-reference to American cars. You can find a cross-reference list here: http://www.gglotus.org/ggpart/m100xref.htm
There are others as well.
Also, if you don't mind working on cars yourself, you can save tons of money! I know I have.
If you decide to buy, ENJOY ENJOY ENJOY! Not only will it be fun to drive, it is a rare car as well - 3855 built - another 800 were built later and those are considered the S2 version (if i remember correctly).
