Nothing too crazy , but managed to pick up a really good quality MY14 (dec) with 9500 miles last week.

enjoying it so far, they dont have the soul of an RB car, but the tech is chalk and cheese.

Following Inspiration from Gio (once again following the purchase of his 34 in 2010) i ordered the RSW interior & Garage Defend full carbon cooling panel

The Competizione R Evolves - Speedhunters


R34 & R32 Projects continue, but this is the new daily

i will go for more cosmetic items than power output

trip to Top Secret next couple of weeks, so doubt will come out of there empty handed

Panel thats ordered (to be supplied by Newera Parts)

Having taken the 34 out last, week it really bugs me to say, but there is no spirit in a 35.

its very quick (stock) & as an everyday car (actually better than the 34) but no soul to it.

i'm going to have to keep it regardless but it is boring :( and yes, i have driven it a fair bit, think ive put on 4,000 miles so far.

What stage is it? stock did you say? I found the mid-top end not that exiting when mine was stock, I found mine really came to life more once i stage 4.25 it.... as it can breath a lot better, and really kicks the spool harder as well , made it a lot more lively.

But if it's not for you, it's not for you, then sell up.

Hi Matty. Now i ordered one of the 1st UK examples back in the day and cancelled my order after a test drive for the very same reason, I felt the soul wasnt there.

Now nearly 10 years on im in my 35 whenever possible. Its now modified, and having some more work done to it. However, at first i simply didnt fall in love and considered many times just getting rid again. Bare with it, give it a good pounding whenever possible and scare yourself a few times, then see how you feel mate.? Just my humble opinion.

You can't expect the same sense of occasion as in the R34, it's a different beast. Very fast and capable!
