All I've heard from Eric recently is that he's planning to have another go at selling his GS Van.

I've been buying odd spares from him the last few years as he's been slimming down his stock.

I don't expect it will be cheap - he had it up for 10 grand last year, but it is the last known RHD GSpecial Service (the others are either LHD or Club spec), and it is in nice condition.

Nice to see another 1.6 TXi 8) In my ignorance though, I thought those wheel trims were only fitted to diesels :?:

Vince,

Hi Vince

Those are off a TGD, I think the original ones "flicked off" a while back and he replaced them with those. His car was a manual with about 100'000 miles on the clock, I was impressed with how well it drove!

Don't think he ever had the original ones Tim. When I bought the van off him, the grey solid wheels had made it on to the TXi, and I inherited the black slotted rims with the van... You can't put TG wheel trims on the original TX wheels cos of the different offset - the TG trims stick out from the rim by 7mm :)
