Mega car as it is right now. Even if Peugeot would call the colour free grey!! :lol:
Haha. JDS who worked on my car at B&C, Plans and of course at JSR - my car loves John :clap:

Twas a sad day when I couldn't bring it up to JSR anymore in that salubrious industrial park in Dudley.

"Free grey" you cheeky git! In fairness when it went to Impact, Mike Santos phoned me and asked if I was sure because "we just did a test and it looks like primer with a bit of pearl in it" :lol:

Lol!! I think the official colour is Shark Grey, rather than free grey. Have never been great at marketing!! Maybe a little darker than yours.

Hmmm, Branded at B&C to fix AC. Branded at Plans to check your brakes. Fixed at JSR - with a little help from Sean. Racing tunnel exit made it all good. There were some amazing 11's left along the way!!!!!

Obvs never in a customers car!!! ;) ;)

My car has left its mark on you I can see that.

I'd be disappointed if you'd handed it back without testing that the 11's mode was working correctly!

Where's that road sign meme that you and Sean replicated? Weaving through cones? Rolling burnouts? Not that the Exiges Anglesey trip ever got out of hand. Not that a everyone meet at JSR and we'll sweep up the breakdowns, didn't encourage some entertainment!

Ever!! :lol:

Well done Ben ...wonder who has owned Exiges of various marks the longest?
I've owned one or Four since 2006 with a short gap due to" folly" racing....and I can still get in and OUT of it No Problems..

Have fun all ....must do more track days next year.

Love that car, there is something special about long term ownership.

My x3 kids have never known life without the car, found this pic from 5.5 years ago.

No wonder it needed a repaint after those sponges were dropped on the floor and then put straight back to work.
Surely they are old enough for a detailing course?
