I have absolutely no idea about Ukranian cars - I just asked my friend Google and up popped that thing! What's the prize then Matt ? don't say it's the car itself! :D I'll settle for a packet of crisps instead

Well done for getting that. Your prize... how about a drink of your choosing at the next meeting?

Sorry, the car is not up for grabs... If you want exclusivity, I recommend buying one though, it's only one of two in the UK... The very same one that was at the NEC last year. I had the pleasure of being a passenger in this car on the way home on the Sunday night. Possibly the most frightening journey of my life :lol:

Tim - Foglights had to go back in the AX before it went, and half the badge went missing, so I took the rest off because it looked wrong... Still looking for one, preferably in black. I might have to resort to buying one from a dealer :shock:

You should see it now the red striping has returned to the bumpers. It actually looks far better than I expected.

I have a pair of black bonnet chevrons. They're in good order. You can have them if you like. (I don't think I'll be needing them)...

Just PM me your details and I'll send them off when I get the chance.

I have two black new chevrons sat in my draw purchased as part of the hoard I got from NT Shaws. They are ear marked for the GT sorry as the one on it are held on with superglue :shock:

Heres the part no if that helps: 95609863, they are only a few quid each though Matt.

Yes please Phil... PM heading your way

I think the red trim in the bumpers really sets it off, what do you think?

I know... I was going to buy those and the rubbing strips, both of which you had :lol:

I really need the Rubbing strips too... Phase 2 side skirts just wouldn't be right without them :)
