Beautiful!

What's the round hole/indentation in the top of the ashtray lid?
Thanks Willy!

I bought a set of 5 self-adhesive wheel centre badges from the Club to cover the SD1-type logos (and well worth the few quid they were!), and thought the ashtray a perfect home for the fifth one! :)

Very nice indeed. What are the two additional dials in the centre console ? Can't think of anything else you would want to know which isn't displayed on the S2 instruments.

Thanks Pat.

The right-hand one's a mechanical oil pressure gauge. I was getting random, low readings from the dash gauge before the sender packed up completely. Rather than rely on electrickery (and the quality/accuracy of aftermarket senders), for peace of mind a mechanical gauge is pretty foolproof.

The left-hand ones a vacuum gauge. Not only does it help in driving economy, it can tell you a lot about the state of your engine.

Oh...and I quite like how it looks as well. :)

Looking good Stan :D

I too grabbed some silver centre cap badges whillst at Coughton for my Vitesse alloys. They do look better on the P6 than the red SD1 badges.

Cracking looking car, I particularly like the combination of red carpet, with the lovely looking cream seats. Love the purposeful looking tailpipe as well.

Hi, love the carpet! can you tell me the colour and where you got it from?
I think those wheels suit the P6, I have been looking for some for my own.
Nice car :)
