An Update

Hi guys,

Thanks for sharing your experiences... I've decided to buy it! Should be ready either tomorrow or friday!

Both keycards are there, but the second one only opens and locks the car, it won't start it. I might invest in a third.

I've also found a great warranty that covers everything for £289/year with no excess... Seems like a good investment given the possible electrical issues.

One of the headlight washer jets has been replaced, but left unpainted. Anyone know a good way to sort that out?

Also, one of the Xenon headlights has quite a bit of condensation in the unit.. Could this lead to damage?

Apart from that, I'm absolutely over the moon, and really excited about cruising in the Vel. I'll keep you updated and still welcome any views/advice.

Thanks guys!
