    thanks jake i know im letting the side down and should have a growing m1 collection well to cut a long story short i purchased this off site without knowing james was the seller as you can imagine i was relieved to find out he was and because of his wrf status i could rest easy knowing they are original and authentic pieces ,he was also true to his word and sent me a visor to complete my mk6

    You collect whatever makes you happy,no more no less Bud,anyway M1's are becoming an expensive business,afterall I should know,can't stop buying the bloody things,need to remortgage at this rate................
    With Regards Jake.

    i hear you jake are the m1's thin on the ground in the uk ? im always reluctant to buy as so many euro clones are masked by genuine us covers and we can all do without the hassle of returning them ,i notice from the few ive viewed on the bay the sales pitch for m1's is in the style of and such like ,it seems the sellers know they are not what they seem so buyer beware

    Hi James, a nice little grouping there, I have no evidence to back this up, but would it not make more sense for this to be National Health Service Reserve? Just seems logical to me, but I am happy to be corrected. Leon.
