    As subject I took a deposit on my car tonight so it will be going either this week or the following week.

    It will be a sad day when she goes, but it's time to move on.

    Just some pics to remind me:

    Yeah I got a price close to what I wanted for it. So I am happy.

    Sad to see that one go. Don't forget to take loads of pics of it before the new owner gets hold of it. What's coming next?

    Don't think he purchased a Supra, insurance would be murder, something more practical methinks, and used daily....

    Mark get rid of the shopping trolley handle on theboot , get something a little more subtle, looks nice though mate,
    Plenty of nice wheels out there for it , large with Stainless lips :yes: sounds good to me especially on black car.

    No doubt it wont stay standard for long .......:eyebrows:

    You know it makes sence , but sublte tho please

    I will keep it subtle, but I'm not changing the spoiler that's part of the car!

    Hopefully this one will stay mostly standard. That's why I wanted a car that has had a lot of things done from the factory (Body kit, wheels, seats etc...) to stop me spending money on it!

    Will probably:

    Lower it
    Change the wheels
    Change the exhaust system
    Induction kit

    Then performance mods!

    Got a great long list, but half of that went on labour as I took it to a Honda Main dealer to keep it's full Honda Service history.
