    Looks good

    It’s a 16 year old car now though so obviously you should expect to do some work.

    Missing a panel from front of engine covering compressor by looks of it, but I'm guessing not the end of the world!

    I wish.
    And look at that... a Black Series too.

    Pretty rare given they don't exist.

    It apears the cover doesn’t do anything, for me better off without it.

    I was just about to ask that, as I was under the impression the "Black Plague" of everyone doing a black series started a few years later.

    Certainly very well optioned though, although unusual to see the panoramic roof not being present as that was far more common than distronic or linguatronic.

    I think it should probably be in place even just to prevent dirt etc?

    I know what you mean about the "Black Series" designation. There are quite a lot of claimed Black Series in ads for cars where none were ever made. Perhaps the sellers should just shorten it to "BS"...

    Ironically, the owners of the genuine ones tend to do this. :)
