    I know its been done before, but i must thank Karl, and all the guys at Verdi yesterday.

    They changed my grill in good time and let me make the tea/coffee (thanks)

    Nothing else to say but what a good job...oh and he has the cleanest low mileage 328gts ive ever seen ( its for sale) 1300miles and looks (is) brand new.

    Im thinking and counting my pocket money here Karl........

    from a distance the CF looks like a sprayed black grill, the challenge gives you the exhust view through the grill...and you know how polished mine is..

    Nice shiny fcar respect will have to compare shine when the two cars meet...I thought the colour coded grill was nice but the mesh challenge grill just grows on you..

    Hi Joe hope you dont think i am being critical ,but like you i thought long and hard and to be fair it will that the heat out better after all thats why it is a challenge part . I just like the red . I have changed the front grills and dare i say i am running Challenge wheels now which (i think)make the car look awseome I have kept the original wheels to put back on for servicing so not to effect warranty ect and fitted slightly wider P zeros on the new wheels

    We must compare polish when we meet cos i am as proud of my car as you are off yours

    Regards RAY 360m

    Thanks guys 4 all yr comments,

    Like Ray im thinking of Challenge front grills too, and if poss a set of CS alloys with tyres,

    Karl says he can adjust the ride height to complement the wheels to give the car a better road stance.(as the CS currently has).

    However all the mods are reversable come the time to move on to the CS...

    Wazza,

    You must take me in the car on the next meet...ive seen Ricks yellow stradale and trim and it looks v..nice.....I prefer the car in Scuderia tho...

    Joe,

    I know this thread is about the cars, but I am impressed by your garage colour scheme. I'm thinking about doing mine up for the arrival of mine. I have a concrete floor and breeze block walls. Do you know how your surfaces were preparred for the paint, what type of paint was used and where you can get it from?

    Cheers

    Ken

    Like the new grille, but you must slow down. Is that a years supply of toilet rolls in the garage for when you get home everytime?

    Hi Joe,

    I will definately take you out at the next meet .
    No problem and anybody else who wants ago. (so no tears anyone)

    I also love that yellow one.
    I think it's going to be unique.

    I hope Robin has seen it as it's the interior I was trying to describe to him for his black one he has ordered.

    Not quite the same trim although the colours will be the same.

    My car will have yellow and black alcantara. The seats will be black at the sides and yellow in the middle. The horsey will be in black stiching and the holes for the belts will be vlack too. The lower half of the dash will be yellow and all of the stiching in the car will be yellow too. The stearing wheel top quarter will be yellow too.

    Basically if you look at a standard red/black CS interior mine will be yellow where the standard one is red.
