R8 on television

#1 Post by Johnny 216GSi » Fri Dec 29, 2017 12:23 am

The Christmas special of Still Open All Hours (new series)

About 13 minutes in on iPlayer.

Rear lip spoiler, dashboard dimmer, tear-drop indicators and the style of wheel trims tells me this is a K or L 1993 216GSi :laughing2

Looks just like my father-in-law's 1990 216 GSI from a few years ago
