Cat coming out of the bag time (and sorry to disappoint, Paul) - as of tomorrow, that particular one (AYH) will be sitting on my driveway,  .

Ah well teach me to move faster next time , hope it all works out well and enjoy    Paul

Thanks - I will. It's only taken me the best part of 2 years to find the right colour combo allied to all 3 options packs, a CR box and a sports (2bular its previous owner Gavin informs me) exhaust.

Give Brandon a call, I'm sure he's more than willing to talk about it.

As seen elsewhere I'm mid car purchase with him.

I put a deposit on mine less than 12 hours it was up for sale and dealer didn't even know they had it in stock because their parent company had listed it on Autotrader on their behalf. I think now you have to be quick if you want a particular spec. As for colour, you have to be even luckier IMO. Spring is already here so demand will be high!

20 hours to go - not that I'm counting, :D.

it took me ages to find mine too......

if I ever stopped to think about it, weigh up the pros and cons, think if I could live with or without something....invariably it'd gone by the time I decided I wanted it.......

The smile hasn't left my face, even when I was asleep so my good lady informs me, :P.

 

There is just one issue though; the instrumentation seems to be on the blink. According to Google maps (and the satnav) the journey from MMC to my house should have been 16.1 miles but it has been recorded as almost 100. How can that be? :whistle:

 

I've got my name down for the Dunbar breakfast meet for an early-into-ownership show-off session. It'll have its wheels gloss black by then (being done right now at The Wheel Specialists - I know, barely 24 hours in and I'm modifying already) but maybe not the part-wrap to complete the SR look, or the barge boards which are sitting in the spare bedroom awaiting the wrap being done first.

Modding is part of the fun!  Not cheap usually, but fun.  At least you never see 2 the same even in Scotland where they seem to breed better than most areas.

 

If in doubt - speak to Craig!  He'll sort you out.  Congratulations.  Well I'm offshore for the Power Station meet still unfortunately as I'd like to have seen it, but I'll be there at Petit Paris in May or wherever we end up.  I'll see it eventually.

 

Congratulations.

blacklight2_zps79e706ac.jpgI painted my light surrounds satin black and ordered black lotus letters to.

I also have barge boards in my living room ready to fit to lol

Next on the modifications list is having a part-wrap done to replicate the Sports Racer look (along with black badging) then the barge boards can go on. After that I'm looking at a BOE CAI and possibly a Difflow diffuser, if it will fit around my ASBO exhaust.

 

Here are some pics taken yesterday. The light was far from ideal and my phone camera hasn't captured the Laser Blue too well I'm afraid.
