IMO your landy looks fantastic as it is and i would follow stormins advice get all of your mechanics in order first get a good heater and then start looking at cosmetics. also save some of your money for driving lessons and fuel/ insurance Wink

I reckoned 1/3 mainrenance, 1/3 Ins & tax, 1/3 fuel

but if it's petrol then

1/10 Maint, 1/10 Ins Tax, 8/10 Fuel *LOL*

Cheaper if you don't get the first bit right. then it won't go, so you won't need the second two bits.

Only joking. Laughing Laughing Laughing

I'm sure that your maintenance will be superb and she will go like a racing car. Laughing

Hmmm... would have looked better with thicker set tyres I'd say... Very Happy

Tis yours to do what you wish with... I think a stock looking series landy is the best option... Add a few light personal touches by all means... I don't mind mechanicals being changed to suit the owner... I don't worry about writing on tyres and I can even stand scary paintwork... but a series landy is perfect looking to me... I'd not want to change it... Very Happy

If I paid out for a 90 I wouldn't want to change it to look like a series... why the other way round Question Updating things is a very very personal judgement... I hope you pull it off mate... Cus if you don't... Shocked Laughing Wink

Its good that you've seen sense anyway. As mort says, a few personal mods are fine, as long as they dont alter the character
