To be honest,I'm a little wary about starting the car up 'out of hours' as it doesn't have the Bi Modal exhaust cut out,and this is one noisy car.Also being supercharged,the car likes a a couple of minutes to settle down from  a cold start, as it's a bit of a handful trying to drive it cold without the warm up......Don't get me wrong,it's  650 horses of scary fun,but with the Batflu affecting the shows and meets,there's not much fun driving it to nowhere at 15 MPG on Nitro+...so I'm thinking to keep it on the road this winter,with the option of taking it out on a dry day perhaps once every couple of weeks,and wait and see to wether Boris and his mates can get a handle on the Batflu.Still going to keep the three Amigos,as they aren't the problem as they all get a couple runs a week on a rotation basis at 6 a.m,and that's where I'd like to use the V8....but it's going to pee the neighbours off..bigtime, guaranteed! ::) ;)


 Sod the neighborhood, You can bring it to me Ken, and I will look after it for you, as neighbor has RS3 with full loud pack on, so we don't care round these parts. :y

That'll be 12 points on your licence,in as many months,so best not to put temptation in your way, but that's very kind of you to offer :P Possibly could sell it and buy another 25 Omegas :-\ and that would also pee the neighbours off as well ::)

Going to take it out this morning.....through the town first,wake the buggers up,and then  a quick blast down the M3 for a couple of junctions....no point in doing the M4 as it's all 50mph in both directions......and then the usual fuel stop before tucking it back up ::)
