I ADORE this Grand Touring coupe'! It gets admiring glances wherever I go. I replaced the timing chains and tensioners as well as a tune-up. H runs like a stallion! 8)

I rode BMW motorcycles "back in the day" but no more. I will be 70 on December 1st. I'll drive the XK8 back to Tijuana, BCN one of these days. (I stay in the tourist areas and keep a low profile).
