just wondered if most people use their R's as everyday motors or weekend toys?

my karmann ghia hasn't had a look in since i got my R six weeks ago :D

Every day motor for me !!!!!

Although we have a 147 alfa diesel 150bhp i still would rather pay for the extra in petrol just to keep the big grin on my face.

Thats not slagging the Alfa either, its a great car

will try and take some this weekend - its a '72 sunburst yellow coupe (bit of a basket case at the mo) being a uk car the old tin worm has a firm grip on it. have sorted all the running gear etc but not got round to the bodywork yet. got pics of yours? id love a 2.3 stroker in the rear (oh er missus :eek: ), must go like stink! :D

must say - its reeealy hard to know what to spend my money on! the ghia needs attention, but the R is just so damn tuneable :151:

I drive this sometimes too. It's well handy but mainly used for transporting mountain bikes so the R does'nt get messed up.

Me in action!.

Ouch!!
