  2. I have received a lot of messages asking about the future of the forums once my car sells. Well today it sold and will soon be on its way to its new home. With that said, for the forums, there is more information under 'Announcements" titled "Future of the Forums' you could also copy and paste this link: http://www.trabantforums.com/threads/future-of-the-forums-donations.1762/

    Great car; the paint looks really top notch and glossy! Love the Alfa steering wheel!

      Thanks - yes the Alfa Wheel came with the car - I have bought a proper Trabant wheel and did intend to swap it out, but that involves (I think) removing both plastic cowlings around the indicator stalk and bashing out the pin to remove the old wheel. I couldn't work out how to remove the top cowling so I left the Alfa wheel on!!
