Is the Vitesse uprated in anyway then?

Totally standard bar the ICE which is an R960 with CD Changer from an R17!

It does have a few niggles

Drivers Electric Window only works halfway then drops off the runners slightly!
Rear Drivers Door won't open from outside
Rear Wiper has stopped working!

Bought in Spet £310 and all its needed was 1 new tyre and a back box!

Alex used to own a Sterling XX which is also white but apart from that I've hardly seen any XX's around for a long time, let alone white ones!

I'd love a garage, all I've got is this brickbuilt thing on the side of the house that you can barely get a 100 in!

I've got what I consider to be an odd specification!

Automatic
Part Leather
Manual Seats
No Cruise or Air Con.

I've got the R8 style clocks which are fine, nice to have a car with a low fuel warning light!!

What we're aiming for is for people to put their name into their signatures. It helps everyone keep track of who's who. As well as not looking a complete idiot at a meet when you realise you don't know someone's name.

See mine as an example, ignore the car list though. :lol:


Might be an idea for everyone to re-read this thread as a lot have seen it and posted in it and still not added their name to their sig. :lol: :wink:
