Nice 8) I have a pair of rectangular Hellas (with lens caps) to fit at some point. I'd like mine to work thought, so I'll do the job all in one go. The white caps look really good against the black bumper on white C900s. I have a soft spot for the NA B201 - they're not as slow as you might imagine. Certainly the turbos leave them behind on the uphill and from the traffic lights, but give 'em a little while and they soon catch up. When we had a NA B201 and a T8 in the family, we used to go "racing" - I always plumped for the NA, since I found I could fling that around more easily. My other half was quite adept at keeping the turbo up around the twisties, so it was quite a job keeping up. > I don't have a digital cam (yet) but I might hold off using pure gloss white > for the paint repairs until I can get a reference card for Cirrus White to > compare against. You could always pop off a bit of bodywork that's not too big to take into the paint store for comparison ... No, not a wing! I was thinking more of the fuel flap? Paul 1989 900 Turbo S
