    Hi Pete,
    We found with the sills and side panels that they didn't take too long to remove at all. One word of warning, behind the front wheels there are two plastic nuts each side, that secure the back of the wheel arch liner to the floor pan. Soak those well with penetrating fluid for several days, before you try and unscrew the plastic nuts. :ympray: Even though the nuts are plastic, the studs rust inside them and will break off, if you don't take care. In fact anywhere that you find one of those plastic nuts, there is a possibility that the threaded stud is rusty. #:-s :-l

    If the Zed had been fitted with mudflaps from new chances are the sills wouldn't go rusty, they get peppered with stones over the years.

    I most certainly am mark,i am waiting till after summer in the vain hope of a oxford green one,if not i will get one but its got to be first class and will pay more for that.In the mean time i want to do out standing jobs on the zed i have got because i intend keeping that aswell for ann.i look all the time at the ones on PH AND FLEABAY,i have been very tempted by the one at munich legends thats only done 10 1/2 k,we shall see but i will be joining the M club soon.

    Thats very true Liam,i was gob smacked by your ace M at sandringham,and if i find one as good as yours i would be very happy,colour really is second to condition.

    Yes condition is far more important than colour imho.. I originally wanted a black M but when I viewed this little Jem it was a no brainier....
    Best of luck in your search Pete.. But I still think your green zed with thoses lovely wheels looks superb B-)

    the munich legends one looks great , go make an offer pete, life is too short.

    cant really go wrong with that car.

    only issues its blue and you wanted green, but with that mileage and probable condition who cares!
