Re: 716K RHD UK

I just received the quote for the Pinz and man, are they nuts!
The price of GBP34,500 is fractionally less than the GBP36, 800 that I recently paid for my full-house Jag e-Pace S 180 D auto with just about everything that opens and closes.
So, guess what?

Albert
Thanks for the tip Albert; sent of the request last night and had the answer before 10 the next morning.

Production date was December 1985!

What is the build year of this Pinzgauer?

We have a 712K Pinz with this VIN tag.

Pinzgauer 712K
Vehicle no: 4706501
Engine no: 5769071
Chassis no: 4756425
Made in Austria

Any guesses what the year of manufacture would be?
Could this be a 1986 model as claimed?

Hi Merrick
The TD is a different "kettle of fish" from the earlier air cooled motor.

Re: Are the old weber and NDIX carbs interchangeable?

Haflinger carburettor wanted!
My Haflinger that has a missing carburettor has a four stud manifold - is this for a Zenith 32NDIX?
Does anyone have one for sale?

Re: 710M to be changed from LH to RH drive

The OE gearbox stays in place Albert - the Passat cable shifter will be used to do the gear changing.

Re: 710M to be changed from LH to RH drive

A Passat B5 5 speed gearshift assembly (1999 onwards) with modified cables should take care of the gearshift issue.
This is 5 speed shifter in the correct pattern/layout with a detent for reverse.

Re: BMW Z4 Will Be Built in Graz, Austria by Steyr

The BMW will be in good company:
The Jaguar E-Pace will be built for the UK, Europe and other global markets under licence by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, which has also built cars for BMW, Mini, and Mercedes-Benz among others.
