Pardon my french, but what the "feck" are you people doing? Some of you are so rude, intolerant and unkind it makes me want to slap your buttcheecks with a worn out timing belt.

Grow up and try to behave.

No, I am not angry. I am disappointed.

Sensible question. Could you still get Bamboo yellow after '85/86?
Even allowing for a customer special order, which would be far more likely in LHD form, because syncros were so flippin' expensive over here for starters.
E D I T : Yes you could! H1B available right up to the end, according to Bricky.

At the risk of heading of track, anyone see the tristar/not a tristar that has all the features of a tristar but none of the M codes, that the yanks were getting moist over as a well known dealer said it was a tristar.

So it must be one.............. :run

I know for a fact that Shaun (of the kilt that's not a kilt but a skirt with pockets) ;-) turned a rhd Tristar into a leftie because it was 2k and no-one else was bidding.
Things are not always as they seem.
Besides which, this all started off as a sales pitch with no price. We've all had a bit of fun and the sap is clearly rising, but may I be so bold as to suggest that the mods reach for the barn door latch now that the donkey has done a runner?
