    This Cabrio was once mine, except it isn't the same vehicle.
    Apparently at some point a previous owner had two Cabrio's that he took apart to impart some TLC . They were then put back together with the body panels interchanged [I have no idea why] .
    In my hands it had grey leather 'Marlin' seats [I purchased new] but retains the Birds eye Maple dash I made. It wasn't obviously that god awful colour either.
    I sold it to a chap in South Normanton Derbyshire. Original car can be viewed in Cabrio section of the Galleries.

    I think the lipstick pink would be OK if the wheel and tyre combination were more appropriate.

    Your right about that colour/wheel combination it looks like it needs quite a lot of fiddly sorting out as well and reading Alan's post it makes you wonder what your actually buying. I'm glad that I got the Cabrio that I brought F745 AEL I paid more for it but it was definitely well worth it.
