        Is yours an ex demo?

        Thats all I can think of?

        Or is it second hand? If it is, it might have been seriously ragged. In which case you will have a fast car!

        In any case dont fret - warranty!

              Hi mike just to let you know and it is on the forum somewhere!
              I had complete clutch failure at 4700 miles, and it took 6 weeks to replace.

                  the garage said nothing was wrong with the clutch it was just bedding in they blamed the smell on the wax that is protecting the underside heating up as for the gear changing being a bit stiff they said it will ease up with time so time will tell at least it has been noted so if things do happen its down to them and i even got given the vxr mats today not bad eh only took three and a half weeks
