Thanks Yvette. Black leather is ideal when you have to shoehorn a muddy long haired German Shepherd in the back, although I do rather fancy red. I think it would go perfect with grey, so if anyone out there wants to do a swap ......... :yes:

Treated myself to some pressed plates as a screw kept falling out of my old ones. Popped them on in between showers last weekend, as I couldn't wait for a nice day. I absolutely love them and they look so much cleaner not being screwed on. :D

I've finally got the red leather interior I've always wanted! I stumbled upon a member in Swansea who had a Misano Red TT with red interior but wanted black as it was too much (as you can see).

The only problem was that I live in Lancashire and neither of us wanted to be unable to use our cars. I had a cunning plan .... My brother, who lives in Cardiff, was here visiting at the time. I half jokingly suggested that we swap interiors while he was here, then he drive back to South Wales, arrange to meet up with the chap in Swansea, swap interiors with him, then swap back again next time he was here!!! He said yes!

Thanks Jess :thumbsup:

I bought the pressed plates off eBay, a bargain for just under £20 for the pair. I'd definitely recommend them. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321413552350? ... EBIDX%3AIT

That is a nice combination!

I don't blame the other guy for wanting to swap, red on red is just far too much to live with!
