    The rational for many considering the premium programme and Classiche will be wide ranging.
    For example (and contrary to what has been said) because mine is so unusual being intergalactic miles it might well help give a potential buyer the confidence it’s ok, not only ok but actually good. It’s not going to be for sale so it’s a academic really. It is however, why I am discussing the alternatives with my indi and it’s serendipitous that he has also been considering doing something more tailored to the car but giving a similar quality binder document on the state of the vehicle signed off by an independent expert coupled with a refresh on some known weak spots/perishables.
    It’s an interesting thought.... we will see.
    Cheers, Giles

    Exhaust needs to be original as do all parts. For example I have some silicon hoses when my originals let go, they would have to be replaced with standard OEM items.
    Cost is about £10k for the Premium Programme which replaces many parts that are known to fail over time but are not part of scheduled servicing. But if you do this you can get the Classiche Certification for £1k instead of £6k.
    The risk I see is if the main dealer insist that many other parts are changed upping the overall cost.
    If it was Ďjustí(!) £10k then it sounds good, you would get a more dependable car plus possibly add some value to the car.
    Having said all that there may be a much more cost effective alternative to this scheme, one which Iím in conversation with at the moment.
    By the way not sure when my local dealer (Solihull) will get accreditation to the Classiche Scheme but itís likely to be in 2021 at some point.

    £6k for classiche You need to shop around; they are taking the piss with you. But then there is poetry there for driving so far during lockdown.

    This is what they would change on the Starter Kit, system 1 of 4 systems to be updated with fresh components....

    Makes more sense if thatís what it is.

    I already get this service from Stratstone as they always advise me if there is an upgraded part available for either car. As with other posters I have upgraded parts like hill engineering ball joints, tie rods etc. That will be staying on. Definitely a step in the right direction given the increasing legacy fleet mileage.

    £6k is only if you don’t do the premium programme. If you do then the Classiche accreditation is £1k.

    Hi Folks,
    Through the power of social media Iíve been in touch with the chap who ordered my 360 new 20 years ago. He has sent me a photo of how it looked back then and also I can now see itís original number plate, it came to me on a personalised plate before I put my Ď360í number on.
    I wonder if anyone will recognise the number or indeed if anyone might have previously owned it?
    I think the photo is a photo of a slightly curled photo, I donít think it really was running that much positive camber as suggested in the photo!

    Really cool to find a pic of your car earlier in its life. I bet the original owner would be surprised to know how many miles it has covered since!

    Agree....my car had VIP1 on it early in its life which is now on Roman Abramovichís Corniche and prior to that had been on the Pope mobile..... I could never find any pics of my (ex) Silver 360 on that plate though but no doubt someone will reply with one in about 10 minutes

    The rear looks cool, but I was wondering where is the front shot.
