Lee, do you still have pics of the Saab wheels on your car? Can you tell me the year(s) and model they come from?

Wolfrace Thrust wheels from the 80's, 15 inch. They were made for the XR so the wheel is a bolt on.

Might not be killer, but I like them for now.

Sometimes I forget how nice that car was...Escos is good, swapping out the Megasquirt for a Haltech now, almost ready to start.

Made around 400hp/360tq to the wheels at 20psi... On a EFR turbo now.

Neva!!! Lol. Although the Focus RS has caught my eye.

NIce! I was about to ask if it's a genuine RS shell or if the number of windows had been reduced from it's days as an XR4Ti?

But then I noticed the mk2 Sierra petrol flap.

Was this originally a mk2 2 door Sierra imported from Europe?

Either way, a lovely looking Sierra :notworthy

Also, I have a Renault Laguna splitter on one of mine, did that come over with the bumper or do you have Laguna's in the U S of A?

Come to think of it, your later Xr's probably had that kind of petrol flap?

Or did they all have flaps like that?

I thought I knew a decent enough amount about Sierra's but your XR's throw up another load of differences to learn.
