The car is repainted in a colour witch is very cheap than the original.
One spray in bulgaria with this tone of colour is about 1.5 pounds.
:) I Think its great colour.

That's great. Can we have some close-up pictures please? Must be the earliest BX in our club - one of the first. Looks like a nice place you live too.
