all that bothers me is someone breaking into the house for it, but i have a plan for that. and car park dents.... I left it on the kerb outside of a subway today with busses passing 12 inches from it.. you have to live, no point buying it if all i do is worry. Its a lump of metal/plastic and dead cow skin albeit an expensive one LOL...Good idea.
Just remember when you start leaving it places it's just a bit of tin, like you told me! I bet your paranoia starts driving you crazy too! Mines wearing off now I must admit.
The one thing I'm guessing you are having a little trouble with will be the clutch, unless it's different to the MK4 R's paddle setup. Mines bedding in now, but damn, was sharp.
Wouldn't mind letting you have a go Mark be interesting as to your thoughts on the mkiv/mkv differences. I know your not a mkv lover so wonder whether this would turn you...Very nice Andy 
Look forward to seeing her next weekend at Midland!
It would only turn me if they sold me one for 5K!
I've always thought they should do a R30d with the 3L Audi TDI engine I bet that would make a superb car and with a remap (about 285bhp and 400lbft) would be showing some of the high powered petrol cars a thing or two but I doubt they'll ever do it although I suspect if the price was right it would have plenty of buyers.That is one great looking car - one of those cars that I'd def have on my list if I didn't do 40k miles per annum. Until they do an R32 with a nice six cylinder diesel engine, I'll have to stay with BMW.....
