    I was 18 when I went in my first GT4, I loved it! What do you think of the 16" wheels I have been offered.

    Personally I think they look good. A nice period looking wheel. Too many purists shun simple changes, but aesthetically I think they suit it.

    The 16 Superperformance ones are nice.

    I had a set of 16" Compomotive Ferrari split rims on my GT4. Suited the car really well.

    The 456 was the obvious thing that came to my mind too. Refined yet sporty and above all a Ferrari.

    I've had my 456M GTA for a year now and use it daily. Commutes, supermarket shop, school run, etc etc. as long as it is properly maintained, the car is very reliable. My car was a bit unloved and so didn't get used much before I bought it, so I changed everything. Belts, tensioners, all filters, overhaul of cooling system. Now it's my DD.

    Go for it. Better than a DB7.

    Hi Nick
    Did you other car sell in the end, to give you funds for work needed?

    Sadly no Grant, the auction fell through, trolls ended up bidding and ebay had to refund fees etc..
    As you probably know I took a right hammering on the internet about the car, so i have decided to fix as many of the issues that i can (as identified by pistonheads and other chaps on the net).
    I am getting 2 new skirts/sills CNC made for me in Chicago, and replacing the front and rear sections of the car. A new screen is being fitted tomorrow and I will try and get it road legal.... Then sell it. Even if i don't get it legal having the body (so superficial!) looking better might help shift it.

    As for the 308, i need to return it to OEM, so I need to replace the wheels and AC..

    The master plan for the 308/456 will have to wait :(
