    No, the preceding model...

    430 would have been amazing but the bank manager wouldn't have allowed it methinks...

    thanks man; you too; I was anxious for a change like you and have tried to go for something a bit special but at the same time sensible...I'll let you know how that works out!

    Anyway, let me know when you're in town and we'll catch up...

    Where abouts did you move to>?

    Nurburgring silver with the Bordeaux (red) leather...it's a nice contrast. I didn't want red or yellow...considered black but happy with silver.

    Running costs for sure willl be higher than the S3 but the depcreciation will be less. Swings and roundabouts!

    Ok, so I picked it up yesterday in Kent, had a mindblowing journey back to the flat...

    I've had to come into the office this morning until 11am but I've left the camera charging at home so will get some pics up at midday.

    It's awesome though. Thoroughly awesome. Doesn't even redline until 8500RPM. I mean sweet jesus.

    I'd be like a kid at Christmas in one of those! Is it actually possible to cruise along in one? I would imagine I'd be giving it maximum attack when ever possible :jump: :icon_thumright:
