Radical Clubsport 1100

from Halfords sorted thac.

And you know what? I thought I'd hate towing - the counter-intuitive reversing, the general plodding. Yet, while not quite the 'thrill of driving', the RS2 has made it as hassle-free and safe. Not cheap at £5299, but I wouldn't want to mummy our Radical around in anything else.

I live in fear! The Cupra R's standard wheels are called Potenzas and are 19 inches in diameter. They look awesome, with spokes similar to the claws of Wolverine from the X Men movies. Trouble is, said spokes stick out a long way - well beyond the tyre wall when viewed in profile - so there's nothing to protect them from accidental kerb kissing. This worries me. I now constantly dread hearing the sound of concrete hitting alloy. In fact I'm so cautious when parking that I need a taxi just to get me to the kerb...

AUDI TT RS^

Nearly 15,000 miles on, and other than fuel not a penny has been spent en the TT RS, although this is likely to change soon as the tyres are dosing in on their wear indicators. The engine seems to have got louder recently, which is weird but no hardship, as the five-cylinder turbo warble is one of the cars highlights.

Last time round. I mentioned the unwelcome discovery of silicone sealant in the Capri's sump. Well, the V8 is now out of the car and further inspection has thrown up some more 'issues'. It's now looking horribly like a full strip and rebuild will be required. Bugger.
