Nice RS, and the hood *really* suits it. Softens the lines a bit compared against the black hood.

Richard,

Is your car doing an impression of an MG :lol: :lol: Like the side-skirts but do you have the matching front spoiler ? :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: Prefer roof in black, surely you have some spare vinyl lying around ?
And what size wheels are they ?

Nice car.

Is that My front airdam ? Ohh I long for getting one. Sitting here with the rest of the kit waiting for mx5 parts to tell me they got one in ! I suppose it's the low pros AND whe wheels that fill the wheel arch. So you still complain about a soft ride ? Or are you happy with more rubber on the road ? Does look nice though ! RS ? Still 6 gears,lsd, bilsteins etc ?

ONCE A 10AE MAN ALWAYS. Can I come to you on advice when scary mary gets her pacemaker (sc) fitted ? Still pi**ed off at you for selling that airdam grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!!!!!! But nice car m8 !

ps are you going on that run to loch lomond let me know !

My Nevada has a grey hood and I would agree that is softains the lines.
