I won't say that you picked the best colour but it's my favourite colour, welcome to the club.:)

Welcome mate, I'm fairly new here myself - I think you'll find they're a friendly bunch. It's well worth paying the £13 subs too to get access the whole forum (y)

Welcome to the club. They're all horrid except me. I'm smashing.
Oh and yes, you picked the best colour...at showing dents, paint swirls, faded patches etc. But when it's had a clean and polish it's the 'only' colour to have. :)



I'm off now.

watch your tyre sizes if you aren't changing all four, it can make the traction control go haywire. I have different sized wheels and tyres so don't have the problem with standard tyres but I believe that the club has a good price deal with a company for the standard size tyres.

At the risk of breaking the forum swearing rules - dare I ask what is written on the banner below the window in the first photo........? o_O

im planning on changing all 4 tyres, as the front 2 are worn and were issued advisory on the mot.

plus the back two are cheapo asian tyres so want some decent ones on.

yeah haha its an easter banner for an easter egg hunt... theres a 2 year old in the household.

Ahhh, 'hunt' gotcha. For a moment I thought an unpopular relative was celebrating a birthday or something :)

Welcome to the only place to be if you own a Cougar. Everything you will ever need to know about your car is only a question away. Nice clean looking car there by the way.
