Sorry only just seen this mail.
If it helps I have recently written a review on the car in the rocky section, hopefully that will answer a few questions.
Personally I am big fan of the car. I look forward to driving it every day and it really is very quick, probably far faster than the stats suggest.
I suggest you give it a go and see what you think, Howev er it does not grow immediately but you will soon.
Small world, what is it you do then?
Hope you don't mind me writing directly to yourself in this manner, but I'm just wondering how you are getting on with the Scirocco R. I have one on order in pretty much the same colour and spec, but am now having second thoughts and thinking of plulling out. It got a mediocre write up by Clarkson in the Sunday Times - he criticised the engine for lack of character/noise. The Rocco will be my daily drive, perhaps may get a C63 as a alternative second car which my wife can drive.
Coincidentally, I am also in the Retail/Wholesale Fashion industry and live in London (well St Albans).
