Jees Marc, this car is so mint it's almost painful! What a terrific job you are doing to it. It must be one of the best looking 827 Vitesses around!

Sorry for my late response!

@ Dave: Thank you Dave! It is a nice article i agree!

@ Manalishi: Thank you so much for you great compliment! Very kind of you. I have to be honest though. A lot of credit has to go to the previous owner who looked after it the first 20 years of its life. I just do my best on improving it and let my OCD take the better of me haha. Thanks again!

Thanks again to you Dave! ;)

Cars can easily go downhill if they're not continually cared for Marc so it's a huge credit to you that you are keeping them as well if not better than the previous owner! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Exactly what Dave wrote so you have every reason to be proud of your car. And we all know how much love and care you have put into it. Absolute mint!

Marc, may I ask, what finish is your rear spoiler? Is it the same colour as the car and is the finish flat or gloss? I saw a picture where it looks very gloss and in the same colour as the car and another where it felt more flat, even black/Darker grej? The reason I ask is as I need to look at my own, and as the car is black it could be either.

@ Dave: Thank you!! Very happy. Because she is over 30 years old, from now one MOT is every 2 years.

@ Henrik: Cheers!

Mann filters are a good choice Marc, is there somewhere you could get a genuine Honda filter though? I can find a part number for you, they seem better constructed than Mann and my Sterling seems happier on them.
Price difference is negligible so i'll be looking for a Honda filter again next time i do an oil/filter change on my Sterling, probably around autumn time. :wink: :D

*** EDIT ***

Oil filter part numbers if you want to use Honda filters :

Honda P/No 15400-PL2-505 or H15400PCX004

First number is often marketed as fitting the early NSX, second number is the later part number.
Cheers,
Dave
