Sorry guys and girls its been a long day, big thanks to big Daz for the trip to Kent to collect it
The weather to-day was horrendous it pretty much pi$$ed it down all the way there and back not the best for collecting your new car
The car is basically stinking and needs a good clean before taking any pic's, Si managed to sneak one in with his camera phone before the light faded completely
I got to say I love it its so different to my old newage WRX it feels less soft and more raw I guess thats what type R's are all about, never understood the "R" factor until now and with 375BHP under the right foot it goes well enough its deffo a license looser thats for sure I am going to need to pay more attention to the speedo reading as its all to easy to get carried away
I have already had an offer if I want to sell
I will get some pic's up ASAP once I have had chance to give her a good clean maybe tomorrow.

Off to bed soon I'm crackered but one happy bunny

I know i didnt like my rb5 colour, but for some reason this with gold alloys and the 22b vents, looks very nice.

I bet you was grinning all the way home

That is a lovely looking car Kev bet you must be absolutely over the moon. i must admit even though the 330Ci is a lovely car, there is something that still makes me want a bug eye STI. But if i do end up moving to the states in the future hopefully the next toy will be a V8

Keep enjoying it mate
