Enjoy. The paint looks a bit bleached in the bright sunshine (this was last summer by the way)

Be nice to sort the wheel badges out!

Can't beat a bit of beading! Oh for the summer.....

Thanks :) They could be worse or changed for something better but personally I'm not in to the modifying thing.

Seriously thinking of selling her now (although it pains me to say it)

Done less than 2000 miles in a year. Needs another loving home and more use.

How on earth do you come by a value, i paid £1500 approx two years ago?

As seen on the forum eBay links etc some are after the £2k mark which is a bit extreme!

Always wanted one but could never afford the insurance when i was a teenager! Trouble is for her to sit around most of the year with Tax and insurance as a more mature driver it still costs £550+ servicing... :(

Over the last two weekends I've given the paint a bit of TLC.
After 19 years she was looking a little scratched (mainly previous owners car wash trips!!!)

Two different compounds, pre wax polish and two coats of wax.

Ouch, should have bought a DA.

I love this paint hard as a rock unlike this modern water based rubbish.

Whipped the spoiler off and even thou it's an SE8 it appears dealer fitted. Ie poorly. Re fitted as it should have been!

He's some pictures, but they mostly show the gravel, my other car or the sky in the reflection.
