I think that bit of rust by the wheel arch is likely the only significant bit on the car body. It is a solid old thing. The headlights were not inspiring and to me the lights looked quite low set, obv just an optical illusion. Be interesting to hear if that makes a decent bit of difference. Well bought Sir, this is an excellent car and if I hadn't been rogered by the insurance company then she'd be back in the fold without hesitation.

I wondered if I'd tuned into Great British Bakeoff by accident.

Joking apart I like the round box for the new discs. I've got four pairs of discs and pads winging their way to my house so I'll be enjoying a brakefest myself shortly.
