yeah, it's a worry - i find myself looking at the occasional labrador and
wondering whether it would fit in the back of the wagon ;-)

still it *is* the ultimate stealth wagon.  the forecourt attendant today (you
tend to see a lot of these with the rs2 as with 60 litres this car doesn't have
the bulk-economy-size tank of the ur-q), said "oo err, how many kilowatts does
this have mister?  150?"

"whats a kilowhat?" i said.

no, but the last-remaning-straight-20v-in-godzone has a date with a roundabout
when i get back from the honeymoon ;-)

i only hope that my mate, who is driving it down from auckland to wellington
where it will be my wedding car, hasn't heard of boris.  i though about giving
him some advice, but he's rather full of himself these days after winning the
recent trans-atlantic rowing race, and i didn't think he'd listen, especially
when i would take me 5 minutes to explain what t1, t2, trg, tshift, tmin and
tmax were.  so, to simplify things, i told him that if he had a bingle, make it
a big one...

'95 rs2
'90 ur-q
