    Wow, seal it in amber whilst it's shiny shiny!!! Um, I've stayed out of the :handbags: but I really like the black / copper. I assume you are going to leave the copper bits copper?

    Yeah I love the copper on black. It isn't as 'in your face' as I was expecting, which is good. And it is certainly a head turner. Though, it's dirty already with all these gritters around and motorway driving!

    And no, it's not a scratch on the wheel arch - it's Seat being rubbish at polishing/waxing and leaving it like that...

    :lol: I was thinking that. But I didn't want to spoil it for you by mentioning it. But then I did think it could equally be polish that hadn't been buffed off.

    I need to find a good ceramic coating product I can apply myself...
     
  16. Stop being tight and get it done properly you know its worth it in the long run.

    Very very nice car, I loved your old one but this is going to be a lot better.

    Is the exhaust ok for the upgrades or will you need to replace it.

    Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh at Blackpool meet.

    Fair point @paddy6789 I wouldn't do it myself lol I would probably set a few bugs in the paintwork knowing my luck haha for 2 years you'd have a fly in amber on your car that you couldn't remove lol oh that would piss me off!

    @paddy6789 Looks great!

    I’m sure you will enjoy it!

    Regarding the copper, this is an odd colour, it stands out so to say. It ‘s not very dominating perhaps exempt for the mirrors. If one want to change the colour on them just order CF covers/caps. It will match the other CF parts on the car. I will stick with my copper caps a while :).
