      normal warm up and cool down for any turbo engine i am afraid....

      its then just a case of getting used to the transit van seating position....

      The handling may seem a little different from your 4 wheel drive, i came from a M5 and before this a quattro A6 2.7t, once the van digs in it does handle very well indeed.

      give it a week of pushing it a little harder around the round abouts etc.

      If you get it remapped I believe it a completely different animal, ask the other guys on here.

      You should be supprised with the performance for such a van like car.

      it also funny looking at peoples reaction in their hot hatches when you keep up or pull in front of them as well....

      I have had so many people flashing me with the attitude of "that should not be going that fast"...

      To be honest its more fun then the M5, you can use the power without killing yourself on the bends, and your not worried about burning the clutch with a swift down change....

      Hope you like it, give it a week or so to get used to it as you are coming from a out and out sports car.

      let us know what you think when you have driven it....

                          welcome to the forum mate! hope you enjoy the stay.
                          by the way 18's look much better, especially if you drop your van! -size isn't everything
