    managed to tap the brakes as the abs self test kicked in, and the car jolted really hard. was quite surprised! (that, or i touched the brakes harder than i thought)

    anyway, i thought after 3 months of ownership and 3000 miles id give my over all opinions on the motor.

    for starters, i bloomin love it!!!

    but ive had the odd niggles, rattly windows, rattly exhaust etc...

    and i have been beaten by an audi rs4 tonight, but, i have to expect it really, haha.

    dont enjoy watching the fuel evaporate as i touch the accelerator for more than 30 seconds, and the seats are giving me a bad back on long journeys (and im only 21! my back should never be bad!)

    the car seems to have a mind of its own, most of the time it wants to be a whippet, but now and again it pokes around and potters, or so it feels (maybe because i run on 95 most of the time)

    but yeah, still probably the best £19,000 ive ever spent.

    just had to get it all off my chest

      Get some super in there!!! You do know that the 237BHP is *only* when using super unleaded? I'm sure you'll love it even more.

      The handbook actually states economy will drop when run on 95ron petrol...

        Probably surprised the Audi driver that he even tried

          well, from the first set of lights i buggered up a bit, so he pulled away quite fast, but from the second set of lights, i gave it my all (with the 'fun' button pushed) and although he was pulling, it wasnt a huge gap. still rather fun. the rs4 sounds very nice at max chat!
