They are starting to grow on me alright, although I would think a more subtle spoiler on the rear boot, like a little lip spoiler would suit it more.
I really like that big chunky steering wheel too

I reckon a lip spoiler (as said above) and a set of 19" LM's would be the business.

Agree with what has already been said, including that it is a good looking car. The front looks a little TOO Fabia, but perhaps that's not so bad.

Dealers are starting to get them from 1st or 2nd Week in January.... Book your test drive!

What extras are you putting on it ?

I am only going for a test drive. Not buying at the moment. Jeeze my own yoke is only 7 months old


The TDI 170 will arrive in the latter half of 06. I think it would be a more feasible option for the type of driving that I am doing now.

Your own may only be 7 months old but you sound very tempted

Spec of the Irish market version is impressive compared to UK. Dual zone climate, cruise control, electric rear windows, 18s for less than 500 euro extra . Getting very fupping tempting now.
Spoke with a sound lad in MDL today and they reckon 30K should buy one straight from a dealer. A remap and you would have a very quick understated car for reasonable money in hot hatch/ quick saloon terms.

So Gaff and Bpm have ye ordered yet???

There are only 6 in the country so far and said that it would be a few weeks before the dealers get them. Where are you getting the test drive?

Yip. I had to head away without seeing or talking to a lot of people. Give me a shout at the next meet. Sure you might have your new RS by then

All sorted!

Myself and Gaff took the new RS for a test drive today. Lets put it this way..... Gaff signed the dotted line when we eventually got him out of the demo car...

Some pics...

Looking at that RS makes it very appealing compared to the Audi, with the audi costing more!

It looks well with the other 2 RSs parked beside it.

Must stop by Pheonix next week for a closer look
