Google images shows there maybe some Blue ones, well, as always open to being proved wrong! only the M codes will confirm!

Pardon my french, but what the "feck" are you people doing? Some of you are so rude, intolerant and unkind it makes me want to slap your buttcheecks with a worn out timing belt.

Grow up and try to behave.

No, I am not angry. I am disappointed.

Sensible question. Could you still get Bamboo yellow after '85/86?
Even allowing for a customer special order, which would be far more likely in LHD form, because syncros were so flippin' expensive over here for starters.
EDIT : Yes you could! H1B available right up to the end, according to Bricky.

At the risk of heading of track, anyone see the tristar/not a tristar that has all the features of a tristar but none of the M codes, that the yanks were getting moist over as a well known dealer said it was a tristar.

So it must be one.............. :run

I know for a fact that Shaun (of the kilt that's not a kilt but a skirt with pockets) ;-) turned a rhd Tristar into a leftie because it was 2k and no-one else was bidding.
Things are not always as they seem.
Besides which, this all started off as a sales pitch with no price. We've all had a bit of fun and the sap is clearly rising, but may I be so bold as to suggest that the mods reach for the barn door latch now that the donkey has done a runner?
