Old 14" steel wheels

Damn Brad you mustve been gutted! 8 grand in 91 sounds like a bargain for 90miles!

Imagine that resurrected now as it was, just taken out of mothballs...

Your pic gives me something to aim for when I get the polishing rags out!

(Got anything else like it stashed away?)

Nightfire came out at the end of the MK1 run if I remember rightly - this one is code COQ Nightfire Red - CAQ and CBT Nightfire Red 2 + 3 came after, COQ is Nightfire Red 1. I guess the lighting, reflection of grey sky and picture quality conspire against it in the first outdoor pics! Thanks for you...

Thanks for the reply.

The Sterling is having Rich Moss' old MK1 prestige alloys (refurbed) fitted to it as we speak (always hated the MK2 wheels), will take pics and write up the story for that one when I get it back.

Next few days hopefully.

Glad you enjoyed it.

**You may need to maximise viewing window to view pictures side by side as intended** Well i already had a 99V 825 Sterling since March04 which I try to keep like a jewel, but I always hankered after a late MK1 f/b since having a Nordic Blue 90H 820i f/b manual in the early 90's. The plan was alway...
