1 St Years Birthday...

Thought I would celebrate my first year with 1 my 1M. 27000 miles later still love it, not sure it's meant to be traveling up the M4 and around London most of the time, but cheeky drive to Monaco and doing the Route Napolean made me realise what a car it is.

Gave it a full detailed clean and made a mod to the wheels, seems to be a bit of a marmite reaction, people love them or hate them. Its only paint and can be easily changed, I like them though :-)

Only issues I have had is the dynamic Lights fail twice (both time entire new headlamps fitted under warranty and the paintwork suffering stonechips!

I like it!


I see you also painted your brake calipers. And what else?

Congrats and the car looks really clean for 27k. Mine is 18 months old now and just bought some styling goodies to put on it in the spring

Car's looking great! Calipers look nice in orange and they stand out more because the wheels are black.

Looks great! I like the rims with the orange "time attack" ring much better on VO then on BSM.

Not 100% sure when looking at the pictures, but it seems that also your VO 1M features the $0.01 "Front Side Curtain Grill Mod" invented by Dan Parker:

Nice Artemis! How was the process to paint the Calipers? Would love some close ups of the Brakes.
