Doesnt the registration document tell you what model the car is ?

Or failing that your insurance company should tell you what it is from the registration number

From reading some of your other posts it does seem odd that your car doesnt have an APC valve or a manual boost controller though.......

Sounds very odd to me

Hi Mark Yes I put my vin through the decoder and it came up with the same as yours.

One way of possibly checking is by using one of the Online insurance brokers for a quote. If you put the registration number in it will return the correct model/spec. I think this is pretty accurate ??

Hi Mark,

OK, good to hear it does have the APC, Im sure you have a got a Carlsson, but, even if its not the genuine article as long as you are happy with what you have got, thats the main thing, bearing in mind the bargain price you got it for !

Just hurry up and get your MBC fitted and then you can take me for a spin in it !

did that with elephant and on the sale part of autotrader and they both specified carlsson but elephant only listed a 2.3 does this mean that my carlsson is not a cs
also did all carlssons have the wood dash
thanks

hi Mark
I have a 1990 "G" plate black 2.0l Carlsson
No Wooden Dash
leather seats with Suede inserts
Body kit
Carlsson Steering wheel smaller with Red stripe and small badge
16" Alloys

I think these are the most obvious Carlsson attributes ??

Hi mark

but no coloured infill on the tailgate ( don't know what its called, goes between rear lights  [/b]
Decor Panel ?? I think

My car does have that but it looks suspiciously new
I've seen some very faded on newer cars, I think it might have been replaced at some point.

Hi Mark

Ive just done some research onthis forum and discovered that the rear seats will not fit Cd/sallon rears are different from CS/hatch rear seats
However the fronts will fit

You could always take the leather off the Rear seat frames, i could do that for you its not too difficult.

Cheers Ken
