Another goodie, a viking - the last one I promise! - to enlighten a little the grill, with my very birth year, not the second unfortunately...
I think this post needs a picture...Lockdown being what it is, on Thursday my cabby chic was very keen to get a good under bonnet aesthetic improvement.
Hence I did it thanks to my bottle of Turtle Wax black in a flash on every black bit - large or tiny: head cover, air box, fuse box & the like, including every reachable hose or cable.
Unbeatable & noticeable: it looks now like an uprated engine bay!
Picture may follow provided I can take the car out of the garage...
N.B. I did the same in my 75 engine bay and very soon in the 25.
As far as I know I assume that the IM is the original one. My 1994 cabby was sold as a limited serie with same spec as the 216 ones : BRG only, full lightstone leather, electric hood and windows, alloys and... metal IM.Very smart. Is that an upgraded inlet manifold? Not one of the usual plastic ones I’m used to seeing on the K. I had an R8 Rover many years ago; a good car.
Thank you @YasmineGotham . I've just been told that by another mate.it has the very early inlet manifold, im sure the 1.1 8v had a similar one
