Just picked up an 85 black on black manual, first thing it needs is a new wheel! Would an Mtech2 wheel be a direct bolt on?

Depends on whether you have a fine or coarse spline steering column. The change over date was 9/85.

The M-Tech 2 wheel will be fine spline.

You do know the doors are slightly different from early to late? The difference is on the inner skin.

Thanks for the price info! Lot62 seems to be a Landy, hence £5200 possibly refers to Lot68's white shark: https://whitelabel-2.globalauctionplatform.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/ncm/catalogue-id-ncm-au10227/lot-db89ace3-d979-4c2c-b409-aae401589145 Thats correct, the white e24 was lot 68 , my mistak...

I have an original that I could send to them. If any more interest we might be able to do a bulk order.

#195. He's hoping for around £15K. Chain apparently done as he has receipts.

Not been used for about 9 years so will require complete re-commissioning and putting back together.

The seller is an E type specialist. https://www.automo.co/
