Nothing has gone wrong with the car yet, not even passed the 800 mile mark so I'll need to keep my eyes and ears peeled to see if anything happens.
The only annoying thing I've noticed though, is the fact that the fan keeps coming on about 5 seconds after I turn the engine off!!! It never seems to come on when I'm driving!! (mind you, my musics up to loud for me to notice if it does, ha ha).
I've only had the car for 1 week and knocked up 750 already!!!! I think I better calm down a bit eh?
Generally a top quality car, it's the mkII version and it actually turns quite a few head believe it or not! The performance is excellent compared to my last car, a Rover 100 Knightsbridge SE. I had to rally that car to get some decent speed out of it, and that totally guzzled the petrol, but with the VTR, the performance is there when I need it, so there's no need to rally it, therefore it hardly drinks any petrol at all!!! I love it.

I've also noticed that from cold the engine runs smoothly but after about 5 minutes of running (up to normal operating temp) it sounds as if the tappetts are rattling away! Not what I'd expect from a new car.
