Lots of love for a TVR, what a stunning example, congratulations 8)

Now its time to replace the entire exhaust with pipe so it sounds like a spitfire :evil:

not silly money, and something that I think will only increase in value as its concourse. Hope you enjoy owning it! :thumbsup: I've slowly moved from wanting a perfect car (which entails much worry/expense to keep it that way, including arguments with the wife if she scratched an alloy etc ) , to one I can live with... (despite still being paranoid about parking next to other cars...) :D

Yeah it could be a good move couldn’t it… I know what you mean, the underside is undersealed and solid so usable without cleaning with a toothbrush, I don’t have time for that 😂 plan is PPF everywhere I can have done, and ceramic everything, to make it all more durable 👌

Great vid this one 👌 he lives about two miles from us and I love the roads he uses for this test 😍

That car is still for sale more than a year after this review, and I’m tempted to offer them some money for the child seats to make mine even more practical 😃
