Nice, I'm pleased it has helped someone try them and like them as well in the process. Funnily enough originally I stumbled upon them by accident, as I was searching for something else at the time. I forgot to mention as well I asked about the rev and speedo rings and the place confirmed to me they cannot do it on the more modern LE/ProDrive/1.75 TBi style surrounds as they just fall off. Perhaps they might find a way or some other company may appear and design one that works with them in the future. I'm not fussed though as the rev and speedo dial surrounds look fine as they are.
Also today got something big that I knew needing doing sorted. I was at Northern Alfa to get my front discs and pads replaced and wow good job I did. I should warn you the pictures you are about to see contain graphic content of next to destroyed brake pads and not much better off discs!
I knew my discs were 85% worn and could feel that braking wasn't the best because of it. I got the pads replaced at the same time for good measure, despite them not having much wear they had seized up badly, so bad they had cracked and just well were beyond being any good anymore. My rear ones are not the best but ok for now, either way I plan to get those done sooner rather than later.
This is my first time of going in to have work done at Northern Alfa and at a specialist, I must say I am mega impressed, Gareth is superb, knows his stuff and was nice enough to give me a lift down to Tickhill to look around and eat and then give me a lift back when done. Price was very competitive too, I'll be going there to get all my future work done for sure, so a big thank you is in order.
