Totally agree it is half the fun. It is my second car so I don't mind when it is in the garage having stuff done to it. I want to spend more money on it this year for a new exhaust, rear bumper re-spray and I would like the leather restored a bit!

It was a train ride away in North Wales, so having placed a deposit I collected it on the last day of my contract and drove back home.

It wasn't what I originally thought I wanted - it was better, and the best I have seen since (apart from the same car but with the 3.2 v6 that was sold on the 'Bay a couple of years ago).
I have to agree with you there, meteor grey with red leather...... Gorgeous combination, and yes, in my opinion (each to their own) definitely, as you say, better
