Default Pics of my BMW E30

Thought you may like to see some pics of my 1989 E30 318i taken at the Annual North West BMW festival at Tatton Park in Cheshire and a couple of my E36 with its newly refurbished lightweight forged motorsport alloys.

Funnily enough many years ago I raced a Formula First single seater which had the gear change on the right which I found very comfortable to use.

Have to put dashes in other wise it moves back to the left, doesn't seem to recognise space, very odd
