I'm guessing they're worse than they used to be.

I’ not going Red .....

Strong chance i’m going silver or black ....

Was thinking blue, but having looked again, i’m just fearful that going bright is highlighting a less attractive part of the car

For Hugh, the hue for me is black and blue
And Hugh, or is that, Hue, is gonna end up black and blue
Hugh, have a guess at what i’m Gonna do ?!

Oh, and Spot - if the word 'glue' was put intentionally to rhyme with Hue/Hugh etc, nice one.

If it was.......suck my uncomfortably sweaty plums.

Mate - I feel I am getting close to getting this car how I want it .... and I freaking love it.

The issues I had at the start (and still get from time to time) I think will soon be behind me, and it’s such a joy to drive .... can’t even begin to tell you how smooth and punchy the combo of 6 cylinders, rear wheel drive and an auto box is.

I’ve notice that my braking feel isn’t consistent, and if I hold the brakes hard for a while, I get a lot less issues, and I know it’s running lean both banks, and it’s better in warmer weather ... it’s booked in to a proper garage for 2 weeks time, but put all this together and i am 99% sure it’s got some form of vacuum leak - possibly in the brake booster - fingers crossed I can put it all behind me shortly.

Nice Smile

But don't go blue. Let's remember that the car is white with red interior.

Yes but if it had the MSport brakes fitted the calipers would be blue...

You'll know this more than any ...

But there is no replacement for displacement (and cylinders)

Dicking about with 4 cylinder cars ... I'm done ... my 3.2 A3 was amazing, and my Lotus (4 cylinders but very different) was amazing ... but I'm a very audible (?!) type of person .. noise is everything .. and 6 cylinders is literally music to my ears.

As you know - I live on a hill, so when a louder than normal car goes up the hill, I'll hear it.

Anyway, in my area there are a couple of Jags (a XK and an F type), an M5 (V10), a few 911's and quite a few other nice cars (neighbours son always has a different car including currently a Merc AMG GTR) ..

BUT - and this is my point - at the top of the road lives an R32 ... and honest to Crix - its the best sounding car of the lot !!! ... proper warble !!!!
