If having a forced unpaid day off work was not enough and everywhere closed up so people are forced to sit and watch the £20million tax payers hard earned get blown down the drain we had to find something to do,so off to the hills with the seville we went...and the kids of course.
Still looking great for a 12 year old..beats sitting at home watching tv...:thumbsup:

Nice looking car. Funny seeing all the little differences between the export and US models.

nice look caddy
i just noticed the crest's on the side of the car near the back doors on each side is that something that they put basic on those in the UK ?
usualy only time i ever saw those in that are would be if the car had a mock top or cloth roof they would put them sometimes on there but first time seeing it on the side before

yeah right hand drivers wow i remember the first time i ever tried to drive one it had me all messed up and it was a manual also it was like having ot learn to drive all over again for a 3rd tme first time automatic second time manual 3rd time right hand drive manual i was like if i have to learn how to drive again no way lol

tape decks is the one let down of having the GPS unit navi
no casset player in it wich sucks
i have about 70 cassets that i stick in the old boombox every now and then but cant listen to them on the road

I think the blinkers on the fenders are a great Idea for safety
think the U.S should mandate a law for them or something
not that it would do any good for the ones out there without them right now but for future cars and drivers would be good
i don't care that they make the car look ugly or tacky to a point
what i care about is the fact that if a driver is doing what they should be doing when they change lanes then someone next to them will have a warning they are going into lanes
i used to get pissy at ppl that didn't use blinkers cause they cause more accidents then those who do yous them but lately
im more pissy at the drivers who don;'t pay attention to the ones who do use blinkers if that makes sense i swear i want to build road rage and run someone off the road every time they deliberately ignore my blinker
but i don't ok sorry had to have a Blinker rant for a second there lol

stsuk, questions about the fender mounted blinkers.

Is there a recess stamped into the fender, or just a cutout?

Do they only illuminate with the blinkers/hazard lights, or does it also stay lit with the parking lights?

Pics of blinker cutout and engine bay coming up.
The side repeaters only come on when indicating and with the hazards and alarm guys..!

you got to love the pictures of under the hood

kind of like a whats wrong with this picture
but not at the same time
how everything looks exactly the same except 2 things after first glance that you would then realize this is a right hand drive by where the Break Fluid goes
whyll the rest stays very very similar if not the same as our right hand drive's are

awesome thanks for the pick

How does the RH drive version obtain boost for power brakes?? I don't see a vacuum servo and there probably is no room for one at that end of the engine.
