Yeah I think its looking great, but nether been a fan of the chrome mirrors too much bling for me but apart from that I think it looks spot on.  By the way is that Satin Silver?

IF you was going to replace your chrome mirrors, you should go for the stubby ones! I think they look well nice! Maybe you should go for german style plates? Car looks lovely apart from that! [Y]

Ger that is a super gleam you got going on there, I was always torn between which shade of silver looks better reflex or satin, but I think the third picture down says it all, the way it picks up the sky. Reflex is the most common and I like the rareity value Satin Silver has but then again I would say that as I have one. Any chance you want to share some of your detailing secrets?

the car gets wash a few times a week. usually stage 3 meguires every few months, but it's the meguires gold class polish that bring the shine right up, oh anf tyre shine...works wonders make the old girl look the part, not bad for a old S reg with 85k on the clock

german plates..now there is an idea...

thanks for the comments, keep any ideas rolling

cheers

I thought those MkV style headlamps were cheesy at first but they look absolutely great on your car! I've seen them on another MkIV with BBS LMs as well and they're lovely. So many nice things available for the MkIV but I've only got the one MkIV to put stuff on. Wish I had several cars...
