  1. Thanks mate. I’ve had two more rounds of chemo, both of which were high dose - the last one involved a stay in hospital where I was hooked up to my machine for nearly four days solid. I have another round the same in about two weeks then nothing until new year when I have a stem cell transplant, courtesy of my brother.......who’s in Arizona! They’ll harvest the cells from him and courier them over when I’m ready for them. Modern medicine is amazing! That could involve a long stay in hospital but so far, I’m defying the norm by recovering well from my different treatments. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Given how few RSs were made, I wouldn’t expect to see four for sale in one dealership. Horses for courses. You’re more likely to see bog standard Focuses and Fiestas at a dealership than RSs. Same at a Porsche dealership - 911 turbos are two a penny relatively speaking. If I saw four 911 Rs for sale at a dealership, I’d be asking questions. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. A lot....... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Avoid like the plague. My local dealership had three on their forecourt at once which speaks volumes to me. Glad I never bought one. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. 19s and DCC on mine - absolutely fine ride quality. I won’t touch 19s unless there’s DCC on it but that’s down to the idiots at the dealerships or VW who can’t spec a car properly. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Update! Been told I’m now in remission! I now start my next round of chemo tomorrow - mon to fri every week for four weeks so my hair will probably go for a Burton and I’ll probably feel sh#t for a while but it’ll be worth it!! [emoji123][emoji123][emoji123] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Went today - there was a nice 1950s Jag there. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Had this on a Leon - fine when driving like a granny, spluttering etc if I tried giving it some. It was a coil pack so I had the lot changed and it was fine. If one has gone, then you can bet your bottom dollar another will follow so I changed the lot. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. What irks me about this is that I could spend £40k on a decent clean car and pay all that VED and be sat at the traffic lights behind some shed of a diesel that’s 20 years old and chucking out blue smoke, choking me half to death - and he’s paying less VED - this has actually happened apart from the bit about the £40k car - where’s the justice in that?

  10. Whilst the clutch might not be an issue, is there any danger of the flywheel being damaged by hammering through the gears? I’m on 37,000 miles now and not had any issues albeit the car is standard - I know other people have had clutch issues with the standard car but mine seems to be bucking the trend.

  11. What you’ve discovered is that it’s Rice mode not Race mode - or is Rice the Midland pronunciation for Race? [emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. My sister’s got a new Peugeot - it has touch screen controls for the fans, heaters and air con - my mk7 has some simple rotary dials and buttons - which I much prefer! I’m in 100% agreement with you - touchscreens are distracting and it IS getting ridiculous! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. I don’t get overly excited by the AMG V8s tbh because nothing sounds nicer than the V8 in a BOSS 429 super cobra jet or a 426 Hemi Challenger from the 60s/70s. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Mine’s over three years old. Not a single rattle. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. They tested the A45S in the latest EVO and one of the complaints was..........the squeaks and rattles from the interior. It got four and a half stars. My car is over three years old and hasn’t got a single rattle. I had a Dynaudio speaker replaced under warranty as it was resonating slightly but that’s it. When you weigh up what a complete package the R is, I can’t see anything I’d want in its place. Even a brand new A35 couldn’t out run mine. But as said before, the A45 is a different hatch - you’d compare it with an RS3 or something similar - and I still wouldn’t take one of those over my R either! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
