Quote from my 6-year old when she saw one of these next to my R in a parking lot:

UM Combo tune, PSS Michelins, garage queen at his point
I enjoy a 3rd gear pull now and again.
just a few days ago my 3yo son said: "dad, you have a racekar."
now ever time I do it he stops what he is saying and says: "this is your racekar dad."
I told him it was faster than Lightening Mcqueen. he said "no way daddy."
My boys (8, 5 and 2) point out every blue hatch we pass and ask if it is an R. I have promised a prize to the first one who can correctly identify an R. So far, nobody (besides me) has. At least the 9 year old is now only asking about Golfs, and not any hatch!
On the flip side, when I first got my R, I told my wife that people who know what this car is will recognize it as something different and special. She looked at me like I was
Then, last week, we were driving through a parking lot and she saw a guy doing a double-take and long stare at my car (I totally missed it) and she said, "OK, you were right, I get it now."
I am coming from a Yellow with black striped Blazer Xtreme, with Vette Rallys on it. So this car will make me darn near invisible....and you just have to love the things kids say....my kids are old and they don't say things like that anymore...
