The chrome door handles arrived - popped them on this morning - not sure the purists will approve but I think they tie in nicely with the other chrome highlights on the car and look more classy to my eyes than the cheap black plastic assemblies.




Wheels booked in for refurb in June now, so the final bit of "black" will be banished at that point!

Got the aircon regassed yesterday.
Took it to my usual place but they couldn't fit me in due them having skeletal staff only, so sucked up and went to Kwik Fit who all cooed round the car and told me two bits of useful info....l
1) there's another Estoril blue MC in Andover owned by a chap in his 70's
2) there's an M specialist called West-Tuning based at Thruxton and the owner races Z3's... (http://www.west-tuning.com/)

That's two people to look up - anyone know anything about either of these?

Anyway, £60 and 1 hour later - AC is icy cold again. Time will tell if it leaks out but 2nd day today and it's still working perfectly - ideal in the current balmy weather! Finger's x'd it stays that way and I don't have an expensive bill for replacement AC componentry on the way...
