    Default Colour match on front bumpers - how old is your car?

    This is a spin off from the
    couple of threads about the apparent difference in colour of facelift Vec C bumpers - two already done have asked about lightness of colour, plus some of the specific shades that seem more affected.

    This one's easy - Facelift Vec's only - Y/N and year of first registration - I've not bothered with '09 since they're all stockpiled '08 cars
