Cheers mate spot on. I'm just building a EM with Columbus slx tubing now, my first "real" bike. It's got a strange paint job tho. Do you know much about them? I want to know if its the real paint work. Or a team bike. Or something else. I might take some pics and post something on here but if you know anything wouldn't mind picking your brains cheers

Generally the paintjobs have a sticker on them saying they are original. They vary over the years and some may have come off by now. The factory also used to do reasonably priced resprays up until they closed about 2 years ago.
Stick a picture up and we should be able to tell if its an original finish.
