Anyway some of those cars are when we lived in the UK
Still a German design, either way. WGAF where it's made as long as it doesn't kill you.

Im struggling to think of a better car for the money than the RS. It's an amazing car. I would definitely consider one when I come to change cars. I will say though, that whoever made the decision that the RS shoukd only come in a 5 door version (or that it should even have the option of 5 doors) should be fired with immediate effect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only correct quantity of doors on any car should be 2, 3 or 5.

Erm, certain cars should never have more than 3. I put the RS firmly in that category. Now where's that Ford guy, I want a word!

Given that you didn't win the lottery last week, I believe that you are deficient in the luck department.

3 would be a good quantity for the RS.

Firstly, nice to see you again, how have you been?

Secondly, that's a shitter, losing a nice car like that. I'll never have that problem, M5s are knocking on the door of $100K. My house is barely worth more than that
