I'm with you all the way there Rod [smiley=thumbup.gif]
I've had estates for the last 20 years or so. Luv the MV6 - I think the next time you're in Hertfordshire you should pop in to Hoddesdon (again!) and have a few beers while we negotiate the sale of it ;D

Give me enough so's I can buy a Monaro and it's yours!!  ;)

If I had that much money I'd get a Monaro myself ;D

I did't relaise it came like that from the factory, i have only ever seen irmshcer grills with the black edge or chrome, never body coloured ones. looks very nice. not seen that before

It didn't. It's an aftermarket one that was put on it before I bought it.

The whole grille is black, the blue surround is the bonnet itself.

**Edit** Actually, from having a second look at the pics, I see why you think the surround is body colour. I'm pretty sure it isn't, but you've put the seed of doubt in my mind. I'll have a gander at it when I leave work tonight.

Would I be right in thinking Mommy is your missus car, just wondered if she was registered on here yet or do you do all the maintenance.

Just asking as the site is seeking Lady owners.

Yes it is, I bought it just last week.

We did joke about her joining the forum(s) I frequent, but TBH, she's not really a petrol head and I think it would all go a bit over her head. She can just about identify the front of the car from the rear so's she's sitting the right way in it and that's about as far as her technical knowledge goes!! And because I only bought it last week, I haven't lifted as much as a screwdriver to it yet, but I did glue a bit of the wheel tub last night that had gotten broken.

I was under the impression spouses don't count.

Certainly looks a nice looking motor to add to the collection. :)

Not sure if spouses count, I dont know really haven't seen anything saying they dont count still may have missed that.

Tunnie,

I apologise profusely. The surround is in fact body colur. I've never noiticed before. I thought it was all black. DOH!

Bottom line is, I don't know where it came from really. My guess would be the main dealer as it was a demonstrator originally, but it is definitely an after market item.

Yup, Daddy really does look like the daddy.  [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

You've got far too much money though, there's over half a tank of fuel in there!  ;D

UUUUmmmmmm! NO!

I fill the tinker at leat twice a week, but I'm fortunate enough to be able to expense the majority of that.

I saw the back of a complete tankfull in three hours flat the other week. That's kind'a painful!!!

I would only change it for a Monaro though. (Remarkably enough, the 5.7 litre LS1 V8 is better on fuel than the 3.2 Omega!! Go figure!!)
