Come on tell us, is it in the region of £10k ?!

Linas is the best.

It should do. His wallet will be a fair bit lighter. Can't wait to see the result.

Haha, very true. Nigel you're missing the point I think. The cockpit is vitally important if you want to make the car feel special. Everywhere you look and everything you touch will be improved and make you feel like you're in a much more special car. Every time I get in my 911 now it's an event, transformed from when it was in standard form (having to climb into the bucket seat helps). And that's largely due to the interior. If I left it completely stock it would feel like the same car.

I completely get it and my comment was very tongue in cheek. I've met Ade and his focus was very much on the top end speed hence him being in the 200mph club.

It will look the dogs after and Linas will do a great job as always. I'm sure people will be surprised on the final bill too because Linas is very good value.

Thanks Isy.. yeah exactly that, i want it to feel like a special event when I sit inside... the buckets helped but this should take it to the next level 😃

He is good, simply stunning work. Can I ask have you had all the leather replaced or just the stitching?
