Hmmm, pics could've done with being a bit bigger methinks.Forget what the paint code is but I was told by a body shop that it's listed as Graphite II Effect.Flags in the rear window are on a "sunstrip" which is stuck on the outside of the glass,it represents my fascination with Lord Nelson and reads "England expects" etc Grille badge is the Yorkshire[where I was born and raised]rose.

I suppose the good thing about the pics being as small as they are the only "battlescar" easily visible is the o/s mirror back[3rd mirror in a 2yr period as they were getting knocked off by people driving down our street and not willing to wait for a gap big enough to get past without hitting it-mine wasn't the only car to suffer this >:(] The bumper scars-on it when I bought it don't show up so easily on these pics :y Don't know if the pics can be re-sized without going back to the hosting site[the on annihilator did the guide on]and going through the re-posting route.

Aint that the truth. In less than 18 months after buying mine I spent over 1600 on it. It looks almost exactly the same as it did when I bought it, but it drives nicely and hopefully wont surprise me with any big bills in the future.
Logic says its madness to do this to a 15 year old, 180k miles car, but on the other hand, what else could I have bought that would have been as good a car for the money Ive spent ?
