Well this is my kind of thread :D

One of my best ever finds was at a car boot sale where I purchased a Brand New set of Genuine Range Rover Sport car mats for just £3.00! I went on to sell them on eBay to a chap in Australia for about £80.00, trouble was I only allowed about £10.00 to post them and when they ended up costing £50.00 to post I was not amused!

That Interceptor plan is a fantastic find - is it a genuine one from the factory or something produced outside at a later date??
