Re: Alternative door handles and latches

I'm looking at a potential complete new system for Excels from exterior handle to latch. The handles are too fragile and impossible to replace, and the latch variant used is also proving impossible to find and prone to breaking internally. Alternative handles are tricky to find because they need to...

Re: EBay

Re: Ever heard of this one?

I got a funny email from ebay saying someone has hacked this guys sight and to stop, even though I am a ebay member and that it should be stopped. I got this as a personal warning to me. It didn't say that as much but the way it reads I got the message. I still don't know if this is a fake ad but b...

Yellow Elite in Kidderminster

Saw this lunchtime on the back of a transporter just of the Birmingham Road. It looked like a barn find and I couldn’t tell if it was being collected or delivered

Hi, Adam.

Is your Excel still for sale? I will be near Worcester next weekend (the 19th) and would like to look at it, if I could.

Thanks.

Re: spotted on Ebay

It's back on at £8750. (Don't know how to do links on the iPad). Is it me or is the front, nearside wing a different shade from the rest of the car?
