Please use a web hosting site (like photobucket) to store pictures so you can post them here, using attachments makes it hard to view the pictures when you have to scroll to see them. Seeing comparisons of models is hard to see with attachments too.

I just recently acquired a BRM with three "52" decals on it from EBay. I am still collecting a bit more information. I have been discussing it with Idriss on PM and will be posting pictures soon with other BRM examples so it can be compared side by side.

The variations that it possesses are Exhaust Brackets, 4 ribs and no guides with small text. It would seem to be an earlier model with the 4 ribs and no guides.

Does anyone out there have any more information they would like to share?

I do feel it is genuine else I would not have purchased it, but I stand aside and my little car is at the mercy of the experts.

Thank you for your time and attention

George's photobucket pics are showing a warning instead of the photos. I'm I the only one seeing that?

No Joe, I see it as well. 'Photo suck it' no longer want to play ball with us unless we give them some Money (more Money!). They want free account holders to move across to a paid for account, which many of us don't want to do and Thousands of hosted pictures are now missing from forums.

''YYS4BOB'' posted this elsewhere so if you missed it Joe, have a look now...https://petapixel.com/2017/07/01/photob ... edded-web/

I made the transition to a paid account before they required it. Since I was already a paid member, I didn't receive any notification they were going to a paid hosting system. The fee is nominal and without any advertisements they have returned to a first rate hosting service. It loads and opens fast, it uploads fast and one click on the thumbnails copies the image link for posting. Far easier than moving a thousand or so pics and the site works better than ever. Quite frankly, I would rather pay a small fee than deal with banner and pop-up ads from a free host. I am NOT paying anything even close to $399 per year for my service.
