    I have thought about putting on a XKR bonnet. I too like the vents. I have changed the nose to the updated version - as the original needed painting it was not much extra to get a used updated and had that one painted instead. And I have put on the headlights from Grantley design. I think they look extremely good on this dark coloured XK8 And changed the frontseats. Got hold of used seats from Germany

    That looks great! A very good addition being the later bumper with the different fogs. A lovely looking car

    Hi Eddy, your number 3 on the forum I think, I saw one a couple of weeks ago but they don't appear to be on forum, so 4! Very rare indeed and a lovely colour. I couldn't open your link to see pics ... .. cheers

    Those headlights are really nice. The XK8's only fault is a tendency, more in photos than in reality, to look a bit cross-eyed, IMHO. Those headlights definitely reduce that look.
