    Understatement!

    Dunno if it'll ride into the E38 show like that... if I remember from last year, the ruts in the entrance road were pretty deep.

    We'll have to see. I can see me jacking it up and winding the coilies up just to get in!

    Picking the old girl up from the bodyshop this evening... hopefully get a few pics posted up if it's not too dark.

    Quite excited, even though no one will be able to tell what I've had done (apart from not having a dent in the wing anymore!)

    Roll on Saturday!

    Not sure if I'm going to run with the roof-rack for E38 or not... was looking kinda slinky without it last weekend

    Joe... nope. It's when I reverse that the bad stuff happens! Both times I've reversed, the front bumper has been ripped off. Not good!

    Will just have to take it easy when I get there... I'm sure it'll be fine. I'll be gutted if it happens again!

    its about time somebody invited a less complex air-ride system isn't it! one without compressors and switches and electrics etc, you could just have a bag on each strut instead of a spring and inflate them with a foot pump like you would a tyre! then at shows, let the air out! LOL

    Picked it up. Was too dark to take photos, but on first inspection, I'm well chuffed with it.

    They even flatted the roof and bootlid and polished them back up for me without asking. Tops!

    Don't think I'll post pics up until after E38 as it needs a good clean now due to all the dust still on it.

    Still... very happy with it at the moment.

    His name is Phil Hewson. BMW use him, so he can't be bad!

    His number is 07889 444 063, but Lee has a contact who did his Mk1 and my Mk3 and he was amazing! Speak to Lee as he's Hull based and very, very good... and cheap!

    Will let you know how mine turns out.

    Sneaky peek before E38... no dents, no stone chips, no trolley bangs, no rust, no tow-bar... but no roof-rack or bonnet-bra either.

    What you think?

    From this...



    To this...

    I dunno Sarah... in two minds. Because I'm used to it now, it doesn't seem special anymore... but I'm guessing that there'll be no-one apart from Jez and I that has them at E38, so might put it on.

    Still can't decide.
