I’ve got into a bit of a pattern with buying and messing about with early 21st-century performance cars over the last few years. It wasn’t a conscious decision, it’s just sort of… happened. First there was a Mk2 Octavia vRS, then an EP3 Civic Type R, followed by a Mk1 Audi TT 225 and an R53 MINI Cooper S.
