    Me too...I was only looking last night and the dealers are getting cunning not mentioning the Abs in the header and angling the main pic so you can't see the under seat tray lol
    Saying that...I've never heard of problems with the 14-16 SP abs including a guy I know who's had 2. It's just the high cost of the complicated bleed and the 'what if' niggles I'd have.

    Hmm...I think to use a @nigelrb analogy..

    It'd be like taking a fat lass outa Barnsley chippy and putting her in a Channel dress...
    You still wouldn't be getting the experience of a super model later on in't sack :rolleyes::D

    True but the Barnsley lass wouldn't be so neurotic and have to spend all day at the hairdressers, nail salon, tanning booth, botox, and collagen specialist ;)

    Oh yes she would also be more appreciative of overweight balding aging buggers like most of this forum :eek::eek::eek:

    Frig me, @Lozzy . I specifically purchased a black car because so many rave over Black Edition Blades and stealth Blades and matte black Blades. I thought I was really going to be a hit in the 'hood - so to speak. Now it's come back to bite me big time.

    If it was good enough for Henry Ford, what's your objection to a hunk of a guy in West Mids cruisin' the Senior Citizens clubs in a nice black Citroen C1?

    Bleedin' heck, Loz, a few years earlier I would have been making a move on you and taking you to the drive-in in it. Yeah, you wouldn't be so negative then!! Stretched out in the 1 cubic metre, nibbling on my ear, whispering: 'Oh Nige, what a lovely car you have. Please, let's do this again.'

    And I'd reply, 'So sorry Loz. You're a good chick and all, but they're just all lining up for me - even a couple of guys!':D;)

    Ah, I hate those kick in the guts experiences:(.

    Give your RR6 a run on here for a while and see how you fare. There's a few buyers around at the mo':D.

    I was going to buy an ABS model but done a lot of reading and brought a non ABS
    If I had read and then brought one it would of been in my head
    “Fu## no brakes”
    And I was not going to take the chance

    And back to the thread...
    It just isn't worth the hassle, not to mention telling your insurance you've removed the ABS :):):)
