Robin worked his magic totally and utterly over the moon with it.

@TheDaniel I have the roof down more times than it’s been up 😂😂
Not happy with the finish on the spoiler so going to get it painted either gloss black again or maybe colour coded.
I had those belts in the 135. The lights make the interior a lot brighter than it is. But it’s a lovely place to be. Makes all my hard work worth it. Never thought I would be in the position I’m in now. I was sleeping on the street 10 years ago.

Car looks fantastic. Red interior always looks better in person than photos from my experience.

@svensktoppen i fully intend to. It’s nice to step into something nice after a hard days work. There is plenty of black on the car so thought a black spoiler would tie in. But body coloured would blend in more. Will speak to the painter about it.
@J55NI thanks I agree the interior doesn’t photograph well. When I seen it I knew I was for buying it. Was hard not letting them know that as I was trying to get the best deal possible.

I was the same looking at photos but in person i think red interior suits the grey. I would get the spoiler painted grey if it was mine. Health to enjoy it :grinning:

@JN55NI totally agree the red suits the grey it was the interior sold me the car. Still unsure I like the black but maybe grey would be more subtle.
I had said that’s it done but maybe a cheeky remap 🙈😂

@NickR thanks I keep looking at it I didn’t do that with the 135. Yes it was fast but lacked any feel it was just numb.
@KIbby96 Thankyou I worked hard from nothing to get this far. Slow process but I’m getting there. I’m lucky I have a job I love and it gives me a good life. All I wanted was to provide for my daughter and be able to lift £50 out of the bank and not have to worry about it. I can do that now. Never looked at it like that but yes I am proud of what I have done.
