Entered BMW Car Club Concours finals at Gaydon this year and came third in Elite class - only five cars in elite and prizes for top three.


Judging was the most thorough of all the years I have taken part including a drive on ramp for better view of underside and paint being checked with strong painters hand held light.

The stance on yours is so perfect Dave.
I have to find a way to get closer to that without messing about too much.

Great looking car as always Dave. The cars that came 1st and 2nd must have been exceptional to have been better presented than yours. What cars were they?
After all your hard work, well done.

Congratulations Dave, the car is a credit to you and your efforts.

I had a really good look around your car at Silverstone and not surprised that you received a prize.

I fell in this trap. I didn't know untill I ordered a new bracket that hold the spare wheel in.

Ended up buying a good second hand one.

I know people how have all these part zinc plated. It's pretty cheap atually.
