Re: [T3] How much are original Sprintstars worth?


One of our local old VW garages threw out  Dozens of rims a few years ago...
including a couple dozen of the original genuine BRM's.  I knew nothing
about them at the time but I remember him telling me that they were horribly
unsafe design and cracked and broke often, I remember him showing me a
couple of cracked ones.  At least the sprintstars were steel!
