    Default Panel swaps

    Panel swaps in the 451 community seem to be non-existent.
    Theories?

    Theory: People are either happy with the panels they have, and if not they can't be bothered to change them.

    I'd imagine people generally aren't aware they're even swappable plus with the cars being more "normal" I don't think people have the inclination to want to change anymore.

    Shame, I've swapped many many times in the past - the car gets a refresh and you meet some interesting folks.

    The downsides? Remembering to change the vrm plates before you find yourself 100 miles away, and walking up and down the car park trying to remember what colour your car is.

    451 panel sets aren’t as easy/(or rather quick to do) as the 450 to fully swap out

    450 owners don't do panel swaps anymore either.


    Thing is when they were new it was a great idea, but now they're all 15-20 years old, nobody wants someone else's stonechipped/scuffed/cracked panels on their car.
