That colour with trim & wheels is a contemporary look. I do like the early colour/trim combinations which seem to be fitting but that should turn out to be a very attractive car...
1995 416 SLi (Ostensibly BRG) - on the road
2000 Citroen Xantia Estate (silver) - on the road
2006 Ford Transit (white, what else) - on the road
1972 Mercedes 350 SL (red) - not on the road
1998 Audi Cabriolet (maroon) - not on the road

I’m looking forward to getting stuck in with it :)

Identical to the car my parents used to have and the inspiration for getting a SEI of my own. Looks lovely!

Just been looking at How Many Left in response to a FB post, and noted there are only 6 SEi’s taxed that were registered in 1996, compared to 117 that were registered in 1995.

Mine is one of the 1996 ones (registered 29/2/1996, leap year!) so I guess this makes it one of the last SEi’s registered and thus quite rare!

Yup, quite rare indeed-the SEI was only produced for a couple of years I think.

Looking forward to seeing your progress!
