Looks like my old GT has had a plate swop

I saw the glacier white one at the NEC it was really nice and it was interesting to compare it with my own.
He’s the engine bay… what’s missing 🤣

I agree with you. I thought they looked crap back in the day - and compared with a Cooper S - but now I'd be quite tempted 8-)
I remember a mate buying one when they were new and being disappointed with it because it seemed underpowered. In fairness, they were only supposed to be a 998 Cooper replacement and cost less than a Cooper S from what I remember.

Hydro pipes well done! But it was easy 😉 interestingly the long metal pipe from front to back on both sides was there! But it was obviously converted to cones.

At least you can not see the Hydro pipes when it's driving along, unlike the poorly replicated side stripes, the oversized tyres and that nasty locking petrol cap.
