there are a couple of other threads on this. The front panels on this car is MK2 FF with vents made to look vignale (with non-vignale louvers behind them).

Looks a nice car, I would like to see it in the flesh, but for that price I would expect it to be perfect. The interior door catches are at the wrong angle on both sides, which asks the question what else is not quite as it should be. Wouldn't mind owning it though!!

Slippery slope guys.

I guess the vendor can always fall back on the lame excuse...'they all came out of the factory looking like that'.....which is guaranteed to pull my chain.

As I have posted previously on another thread. I did see this car in my local garage when I took the FF in for some work and had a look around it. I agree the price is high but it did look good to me and the original interior was very nice. I think I saw it before it had been checked over and prepared for sale. I'm not sure how relevant this is but they do use my car as a reference when they have any problems and pointed out that I have the wrong front valance so they do try to do things properly. There seem to be a few FF's lurking around in North Yorks as they have another one for sale at the moment!
