Seen today, in black. Badge said 1600 but it had a Ti bootlid spoiler

I'd get those headlamps to go back down, if it were mine...

Not on the database - you need to go back and find the owner and get the VIN :)

Sorry, Jim, we only get a 40-minute lunch-break so it was a quick photo en route to the cafe!

Is that not the 1800ti that sold on Ebay a few months back for circa 1200, original factory black with lacquer shot. Reg rings a bell.

Scratch that. I'm thinking of this one -

The "PLO" letters in the reg appear on plenty of cars from the memory, perhaps why it feels familiar.

"Placed" the familiar feeling. Trawled the dustbin (ock aye, don't start that one up again Phil)

Apparently the P.O. mailed the deets to the registrar. Hmm.

It's mine. Had since April this year. It is 1600 but original owner ordered the diamond wheels as optional extra and I've added a Sabre spoiler. My everyday car - except headlights keep going up and down out of sync despite QRG's endeavours. Hence why permanently up at the moment! Enjoyable day at Silverstone watching the historic car racing.

Enjoyable day, likewise, putting out a major fire at Becketts!

Mine did that when I first got the car, dismantling the limit switches (on the side of each motor) and cleaning the contacts sorted it out, and regular use seems to help :) Good to hear it's in regular daily use too, it's a smart-looking car!

yep regular use seems to help, the contacts are in a 'less than ideal' location ditto with the 480, always spend the week or so before MoT turning light on & off before set off for every journey (the motors and switches are enclosed in a PU rubber condom/shrink sleeve, so can't access the switches)
