Very nice example of an R3. It's got my old Simota intake under the bonnet and sounds epic. Just needs a good exhaust to complete the effect.

:whathesaid: and you can keep the window open a bit to help prevent the windows steaming up if sat in traffic in the rain. Other benefits - less fag ash on the back seats :smoke: ... oh, less wind and wind noise if you are driving with the windows down.
