    tHANKS Dave for the tip off z3m green on ebay,popped over to see it this afternoon,nice car but the interior was over powering in green and blue,shame it is boston green too,if the sickly interior had been black i maybe could have been tempted but the mrs felt like chucking up at those seats.so thanks once again dave and gaz for passing it on.

    No worries! I thought it was boston and not oxford green but it was worth looking at as it was so close to you.

    Maybe you could get the seats re dyed? Should only cost a few hundred to do it, theres a guy in Birmingham at Bespoke Leathering that is excellent at that sort of stuff ;)

    We would have thought about that because its just the green on the seats and dash areas,its realy foul,darker would have not been bad,we would also be thinking its not oxford green all the time?,so i will keep looking.

    I am going back to morrow with my zed,they say its oxford and i now think it is,its a funny colour in bright sun light,looks much more like my colour in the shade so i got to spend some time haveing a good look,the only big prob is the interior i hate it, the greeny blueish dash realy looks crap,and changeing all that plus the seats dont ring my bell and the other half will leave me if i buy it,the extra cost of a complete interior change just does not make sense.

    You must be a little bit tempted if your going back for another look ;-)

    Seriously though if the rest of the car is good then you should look into dying or spraying the interior. Or you should get decent money selling it to put towards a replacement interior? You never know how long it may be before another one comes along.

    Take some pictures if you can so that we can all see what it's like :)
