      As stated in the faces thread:

      My name is Howard Daniels, from Cape Town South Africa Picked up my TR R32 from the dealer today.

      This is me looking all driving her for the first this evening


      Was so excited, I forgot to take pics of the car under wraps at the dealer, this was the car in the showroom:


      In case I forget


      Need to get used to the instruments, coming from a Mk4 GTi:


      This is my baby


      Side on:


      Will get better pics this weekend. Loving the .:R

      Planning to get personalised plate (vanity plate in the US) Wookie-WP (the WP stands for Western Province in SA)

      Thanks

      As sixteen10 (who is also from SA) has mentioned, we only get the 4 door in SA and we ALL lust for a 2 door here is SA, rather than the 4 door.

      Funny how that works. We only got the R32 in 2 door.

      Are humans just programmed to want what we can't have? (Like Charlize Theron )

      Congrats again Howard.

      She is a stunner , TR works so well on the R32!!
      I hope you have many trouble free kilometres with her!

    18. 02-24-2012 06:24 AM #18
      welcome and great looking .:R !

      if you ever come to the US, please trade for my 2 door TR .:R

      the 4 door doesn't look bad and it's certainly more functional

      by the way, why are you sitting on the wrong side must be because you're below the equator

      i would love to have one of those backwards 4 door TR .:R's
