Re: le spider got it
I blow Clios away quite nicely with my wet weather car - a 6 litre A8.
Jeremy Clarkson might describe it as "not that fast" in Top Gear Mag, but i's 5 secs to 60 doesn't give any sense of what it does in the gears and between 30-100
On the headroom issue - I guess it must be the leccy seats that cause the problem. I was aware of sitting very high as soon as I got in it (didn't feel the same problem in the 07 demo).
I'd love to get a couple of in inches lower - it would just feel more sporty.
That said, I think I sit at some funny seat angles, because when I had an SLK55 I had the backrest of the seat as far back as it would go and yet somehow 6'5" Jeremy Clarkson fits in one (he's just bought his 2nd).
