Hi everyone just in case your interested I’ve updated the list above.:) What does everyone think to me putting a votex kit on Boris ? Or should I keep it original?:):p

My thoughts are similar..
I would love a Votex .
I would love a 90bhp .
I would want it OSS .
To get these together is never gonna happen!
You gotta love the Red Votex & Grey & the White .
I think Votex suits the Silver A2 the best.
On our metallic blue or green i think the black lower skirts suit it.
Depends on how much is invested into you motor already, maybe.
The cost of a kit/fit/spray you could get another one already done for you.

That cars perfect as is, OEM all the way, Votex too indignant, for an older man, I`m 51, mines the same as that in Akoya, Leather and A/c perfect, raced a WOM car recently on Canvey, late nite when the OB wernt around, you should come and visit.

See you on the Dark Side.....

Some colours need the black, but the black roof and pillars makes the red and grey look very nice. Only thing that lets some of these pictures down is the blacked out windows. NOOOOOOOOOO.


Latest update bit of evening work for Storm ! A fresh service oil and air filter ( what a pain that is ! ) and a new oil level sensor. Was supposed to have a fuel ⛽ filter as well but would not fit :( only a couple more days til hopefully EML off time !! Fingers crossed 🤞
