    Black Pack done

    Finished the "black pack" modifications last week. That option was only available on white, black or red cars and the wheels would have been the Kalimnos design rather than the Nevis ones I have but I'm pleased with the results.

    Cheers chaps I did see a photo of one of these in the US with the same black Nevis wheels and grilles etc. and I think I saw a silver car over here on Autotrader recently with black wheels but still the silver grilles etc. My father in law doesn't like it, but then he drives a Skoda

    Now, if I could just find the Speed Pack rear valance at a reasonable price...

    Thanks Jim - I've used Steve at Cotswold Auto Parts a few times, his pricing can be a bit "interesting" at times but he is often quite handy. I might drop him a note and see if he has one, ideally in liquid silver already.

    @nick, that'll look great, like an XKR-S
