Welcome, and enjoy :D

I suppose the running costs are a bit of a shock to you after the CTR? :crackup:

(oh and some friendly advice, don't type in caps :blush: )

You lucky bugger mine lasted about 5 weeks due to the fact that it was throwing out 1.6 bar on a standard clutch :eek:

Depends how you drive, my car had 6k on it and had new tyres, I have got 16k out of them but I reckon about 8k would be about right ;)

8k sounds ok as i only do about 5k per year cos i dont use it for work just mainly at weekends but that first 1000mile run in is going to take awhile.i am trying 2 get some proper recaros thats all i intend 2 do to it. my plan is 2 run it for 2-3 years while saving all spare cash and trade up 2 a 320 hopefully. thats if i have any spare running this car.
