89 G 19RD Estate in Olympic Blue, in a pub car park very near to Mr Fearns residence, looked half tidy too.

WOW Tim!

Too bad that even if you were able to buy it you wouldn't even have the space. You'd have to put the new GTI and the Golf on the Street! :shock:

I'll bet it didn't have the Zenith trim though?

Oh well, not like you need another at the moment anyway eh?

BTW what's the RD trim like again.

We didn't get the "R" spec cars.
Is it like my BX Estate?

The R trim was the model below the TR trim, the TZ replaced the TR in last 89. R trim cars had no sunroof, power steering (except diesels) rev counter, manual rear windows, etc.

The R trim was also replaced in late 89 by the TG trim designation.

My RD has a sunroof!
Should it not have?
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

The R trim cars had a grey chevron patter up until 1988, after that it had a green/grey herringone trim which is very hard wearing.

Ahh right. I think the below cloth is what you are talking about

We could have any cloth in 1988 - 1992 regardless of spec as long as it was this one :lol:

Sorry it looks a bit dirty becuase it is. Once it has a new flyweel i'll give it a steam clean.
