    Thanks Ian. The colour combo is what drew me in in the first place. That and the daughter of darkness likes white cars, go figure.

    Jim, Jim, Jim you got her home at last

    You said as much a few days ago but were waiting to get it collected and on the drive, albeit the pics a bit grainy but she looks the mutts nutts for sure. Like you said yourself, I'm not a massive fan of black wheels but on that Polaris white they just work perfectly.

    16k miles and that's the running in done then lol, must be like new almost?

    I'm sure you must've been a wee bit sad to see your old chariot go? Richy Rich and his test drives have a lot to answer for lol.

    Looking forward to hearing more and seeing some better pics at some point soon too.

    I'll finish with just a few questions....
    Is this your new ownership thread or will you start one?
    Any plans for the car other than washing / cleaning / taking lots of pics and driving it?

    Thanks Jim. I was a bit sad to see the old one go but that didn’t last long as I was trying to keep the skin on my face when I hit the loud pedal on the new one.
    No plans at the moment though I will be doing a weekend detail on her when the weather allows.

    Better pictures will be posted in the very near future and yes, as you now know, the callipers are red.
