    Is it me or is there loads of these things around now, I spent the whole of Saturday driving around Leicester and spotted 11 of them, to only 2 A3's. And I thought the UK was only getting 5000 of them.

    I nearly bought a Type-R, but cancelled the order and bought an S3 (Pheww /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif).

    There are 30,000+ coming to the UK per year IIRC

    I nearly bought a red one, and god I'm glad I didn't. I read in last weeks Autocar that some Honda dealers don't want the red ones back /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif They are retailing used at a grand less than silver and black /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Bloody fast though, and sound great at 8,000 rpm /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Honda UK say that they were only making 10000 of them, hence the 'exclusive' number panel on the centre console only had room for 5 figures
