    That's exactly what you want. Sounds like you have everything covered.

    I would be far more worried about having a popular hot hatch than a super car in the drive.

    I hear Golf R's attract the scrotey types mainly.

    I'd be more worried where you park it away from home than possible theft on your drive. Blue badge holder? :D

    No point buying a car like that then worrying. Do your best to keep it secure safe, if anything happens that’s what insurance is for.

    It’s a shame idiots like that exist which make you worry about the what ifs.

    Enjoy it it’s a beautiful car.

    Private plates went on today, surprising how such a minor change de-ages the car SO much.

    The shade looks a lot better with the new pics and as you say, the private plate does wonders. Just get the wheels silver and job done!

    Is it the pearlescent yellow? Or more of a glossy yellow?

    Definitely graphite grey wheels or keep the black imo.

    Its the pearl. Depending how the light catches it, it can change form quite a muted yellow to a very in your face color. Pictures dont do it justice.

    Drove a 580-2 and it was pretty damn good such a thrill.
    Also drove a GT3 and man the decision is still no easier as the GT3 steering and brakes are on another level and I’d say the GT3 even sounds better in 8000-9000rpm but only to the occupants.

    The Huracan sounded insane all the time but it’s gear shifts were too seamless but it was in sport mode and I think Corsa mode adds inertia shift.

    GT3 traction control never kicked in and it turned in better and more traction on exit.

    Huracan in sport mode traction control seemed annoying, car understeers but at the same time it inspires more confidence because of that understeer but can be annoying at limit I guess and not as much traction.

    The Huracan felt more special though! Lambo factor!

    Strangely GT3 and GT3 RS drive similar yes the RS is better and faster but the regular GT3 gives the full GT3 experience and these were both 991.1 GT3’s.

    Did not drive Performante simply as I felt would be silly as then I’d be spoiled as that is on another level to regular Huracan.

    The Huracan felt slower than GT3 but it was faster hitting 150mph on main straight!

    So much this. Has various Porsches available to me at my budget, but none of them make you feel like a lambo does.

    You're not far from me, can I come round and... touch it?

    Actually would love to wash this and wax it, clean every little bit while making excited noises lol.

    The Huracan is ridiculously quick. I've never been in a car that shifts through the gears so fast - and that includes Gibbos M3!
