Re: Hr. Piech's quotes ...

yeah, but i sure wish he'd thought to put a hole through the tank big enough to
take a pair of skis....

i've just heard that the 3rd 20v in the country was totaled the other month -
the paint shop bloke i took the rs2 to for a bonnet (hood) re-spray told me.
the insurance chappies wrote the car off due to the damage, and the owner being
joined at the hip with the car (as we owners tend to be) insisted on a re-build
and paid for the difference himself...

so it seems that christine (black ur-q 20v) is now the only straight 20v in
godzone. seems like a real shame.

so ur-q owners out there - be careful!

'95 rs2
'90 ur-q
