Looks great in the two tone, and the roof makes a difference too. You don't see many two tones over here (I'm trying to think when I've ever seen one)

Great pics, hope you carry on enjoying it!

Looking good! Only ever seen one other two tone and that was Colin the Scottish AACI rep's white and silver car..

If you look under the glove box lid, you may find the option ticket and it may have the desirable Z51/52 options.

Word of advice, ..get into the habit of entering and exiting the car without using the steering wheel as a lever or support. No hands and slide on/off the sill legs first (like a Jock in the Kilt, ..haha!) This does in the adjustment bracket and although it still steers ok, the column can still move up or down. Its a common C4 fault and a pita or to fix.


..btw, I have that spare Schrader valve if you want it. Never been used. You may find that you need to trim the black rubber inner tube seal back a couple of mm. I had to with my own to clear the plenum chamber above the port when screwing it on.

pm me an address and I'll post it to you..

Cheers,
Steve Smile

Re: New uk owner


this car was imported from California about 2 months ago...so the two tone came from there.
On another note we were thinking of changing the colour..possibly white or a darker shade of blue...still not decided.
