seriesxman Hi, there just wondered if you'd seen the x-pack on ebay advertised as oringinal x-pack? We too own a similar LHD car that funny enough was also brought over by a squaddie. I have owned it for over 20years and since seeing the log book on ebay i have un-earthed our german logbook and found that they are very similar in that that they list all the x-pack extras the car was sold with, having researched this further now with the power of the internet I have found info appertaining to 300 or 400 spezials that were built. Back in 1996 when we were showing the car we were told they were all dealer built, Is there any way of knowing if our cars are one of these 300? 21-10-2013
