Very nice example there matey :wink: loving the black roof and rails...reckon you should do the mirrors black too just to even it out a bit...yours is a very vibrant yellow too i noticed not many like that nowadays!

Was the re-spray out of your pocket or previous owner?

aye looking closer at the colour it looks more like the MG trophy yellow alot of onvi yellow cupra owners go down that colour route due to the fact of not many sprayers bein able t match the onvi yellow exaxtly

Previous owner had it done, although I am considering having most of it re-done as they never finished the door shut's and a few other bit's.

Might even change the color all together or there's a really nice yellow from lamborghini that I like but I'm not too sure.

Hopefully I'll have my coillies, black wheels, pressed plates, plate holders and spacers done before edition (cutting it close) oh and I'v also got a black rearview mirror to go on when I get the windscreen replaced!
