Unbelievably, a T70 S5 driver tried to crowd the ur-quattro last week, just as 
I was coming up to a series of close traffic islands on the way out of 
Kettering.  It's a set I'm well used to - I'm hitting the apexs +/- inches now.

Ovlov problems are lessening over here, as the original prats are moving to 
SUVs.  Mostly turbo-diesel SUVs.
