480 Spotted; Norwich City Centre!

When you spot a 480 and wonder if it's someone from the forum: ask it here! One rule: do NOT post registration plates.

480 Spotted; Norwich City Centre!

Post by Jay-Kay-Em » Wed Mar 06, 2019 4:46 pm

Doing my HGV training/test in Norwich City Centre this week, today I spotted a metallic blue (possibly Paris?) 480 on a K plate at about 11am.

Instructor was slightly less excited than me :lol:

Had GT Vesa wheels but didn't think blue was a GT colour + K too early?

Hi, That was me - out shopping in Eva, hubby's Paris Blue turbo. He hates cleaning the Vesa wheels, so she's going onto Pictors next week. Hope the test went well despite the dimwit instructor :lol:
