Lol.. professionally fitted front end.. oh let's swap the nose cone!! Thats hard.. boot lid though a little harder that has need ed a full swap. . But why.. I do prefer the S2 nose with the badge I the middle.. and no interior shots?? What can be more useless then that if you want to sell a car and on strength of cream leather instead of black..

I think this was at the xm25 rally at Cosford, and camped at the campsite. If the rumours are true, it's had stacks of work done on it, including head gaskets. It looked amazing, if a little confused! Personally converting a mk2 to mk1 just doesn't work unless the interior can be done.

Lovely looking car though, that cream interior looks amazing. 8-)

When I drove Fredericks Multimedia, that had a beige interior. Very nice.

I agree cream leather can look great if kept clean and does makes the interior more light, but sadly does not always wear well. It is probably also impractical for me with three kids! Regards, Matthew T. PS. Here is a couple of shots for the uninitiated!

The second picture appears to be Nappa leather. Was that an option?
