Re: Is anyone breaking a MK2 fastback without a sunroof?

I had a base spec 800 fastback with no sunroof, yes they did exist, but sadly she went to the scrappers after she was clamped by the DVLA for no tax as I was trying to get a couple of small jobs done to MOT her.

Re: Changes to the site

My bookmark lands at the new posts page. That way I don't have to click trhough to see them. I too like the new design but as Chris says, ID's on the left and it's perfect.

Re: the mk1 collector from cornwall

I would imagine the electrics may be useful though although the fusebox may need binning. Who wouldn't mind rear electric seats and a full trip computer in their Mk1. I do agree though that with that amount of corrosion visible the underneath would be ferric swiss cheese.

Don't knock poverty spec. Less to go wrong and my poverty spec 820i fastback had over 303,000 miles on it.

Re: Anybody tuning into Amazon; The 'GT' ?

1 hour and 11 mins is a tad too long. A lot of time was spent faffing about but the format is familiar.
It's quite enjoyable to watch.
