    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    i spy with my little eye, a blonde in the passenger seat.

    looking good, although if i had to pick out something, the lights could do with a bit more shinification (tm)

    got the lip downstairs, it would have been fitted wi rest of kit but there a bad curve at bottom and it'd rip off...

    though a bout getting rid at one point...

    decided to do the only sensible thing, spent £60 on few flags and concrete and sorted it out last weekend so now the 60 drop wont be affected...
