I know the feeling. I know mine needs to go sooner rather than later and it saddens me just thinking about it.

Looking good!

Can I see your license please sir?
I will have to write you up for an offensive arch gap.







On a serious note. A copper friend fitted ACS and loves it. Love that colour of your GC.

Ditto, I have no idea why anyone would pick to have their car the colour of sadness and all things miserable. The only silver lining I can see is that because the colour is that shit in the first place getting it dirty brightens it up a little

I admit that I would never have chosen it with a complete free will, however now that I have my 440 in MG, I really like it.
In the flesh it's a very complex colour, particularly when clean and shiny and it takes on all sorts of subtle shades dependent on cloud cover/light/darkness/bright sun etc. It almost has some mushroom in the colour in certain lights.
For all you haters out there, see one in the flesh when clean. Just saying...

I always think - why buy a car the same colour as the road?

OP - do like that blue though.
