ha, you are right but it's what I wanted and it's a shame to have the interior colour dictated by the kids!  They are in it pretty rarely (maybe once or twice a week) and I hope to maintain a no eating in the car policy!

I have had the leather treated with a sealant and wet wipes are at hand.  My B5 also has silver leather and that still looks great after 15 years so I'm not too concerned.

Cheers Jimbo, I do feel pretty lucky.  

If you had one you'd still have it up on a ramp for 90% of the year, upgrading every possible detail!!

Not as yet, though I'm sure the first person to see it will take it.  Am away at the mo, back next week, not been around much in the last month to show it anyone.  Will put it on Pistonheads next week and put some more pictures up on here.

The gearbox on the C7 is very good, you don't really miss the clutch once you switch to manual and use the paddles.  Quick change, Blipping down is fun, and noisy!

And when you are in traffic or tired you can just slip it in drive and drift home.

I was in two minds on this, no badges was an OEM option, if I didn't have the plate I would have kept the badges.  I may still put them back on, not sure yet.

What's wrong with a B7 - that has 3 pedals AND you can add a blower (or two!)?
