That looks very tidy, and very well specced. Best of everything with it.

I have took possession of my new car but the black front looks like it has been sprayed on over the top of the original paint with matt paint (oh why would anybody do that) does anybody have any suggestions how to remove that without damaging the original paint?. I have heard lacquer thinners or nail varnish remover. Any help would be appreciated on this.

Either of those will be very aggressive and are likely to damage surrounding paint and what's under the black. Either a respray or replace the bonnet. A suitable replacement can probably sourced for around £50.00.
Hmmm. just noticed it's the bumper as well. :(

Thanks Mick I have found a bumper and bonnet for around the £200 mark but my wallet was hit hard buying the car in the first place :).

Oh yes the mondeo TDCI badge is coming off (oh the sacrilege)
