Sadly not Doc, but I do have the rear shelf with electric blind (Bose speaker grilles).  It is cream though, and it looks as though you have the dark interior on yours.

Yep black cloth interior :'( (but very comfy  :y) else I would have made an offer for the rear blind  :D (I have the OEM switch already fitted to dash  :D)

A Cream one with dark interior would look a little odd :( and trying to keep her as original-ish as I can.

Anybody with a black one then I maybe interested  ;)  Assume not difficult to fit ?

Stunning - surely 1 owner from new in that condition is rare, if not unique?  :)

Keep up the good work!

Keep up the good work!

I have owned her from 6 months old so pretty much all the cars life  :)

She was formally a Vauxhall Management Car and only had a few k-mls on clock (6k I think ?) so was pretty much a new mota.

Bought her 6 months old, and paid 40% of list price with Vauxhall paying the 60% depreciation !!!  (Thank you GM  :y)

Everyone a winner.

MOT next week :(  Fingers crossed  :D

If you fancy a drive there's an Elite velour interior (in pale grey, though), with all the electric seats and heated rears at a scrapyard near me  :y

Personally with that car being such a beautiful example of an original mode might be worth just keeping it in its factory spec... but only fair I let you / other OOFers know that they're there  :)

Thanks for the tip off Re Elite bits.  I guess I should keep her true to the Original Model & Spec as I can really  :y which is not too shabby  ;)

Cheers,
Andy.

If you'd tweaked her over the years, a worthy mod... but I agree with you completely in this case - keep original. Lovely machine. Long may she reign!  :y

I got them re-done at custom trim place next to where I work in the end (they have some real fancy motas there so thought they should be decent!!) .  That way the plastic fittings/clips are original GM with then genuine top quality leather and look factory fit and blend perfectly to the pattern on the black console  :y. And the smell of leather in the car is a bonus !!

I shall try to take a PIC and post  :y
