Well, it's now at home again with plates!!
Registration went nice and smoothly. Then commenced the 50km drive home, and was stuck in traffic due to highway being closed for an accident. The R did well in the stop start traffic, no overheating etc. The first decent drive did highlight a few things though... Wheel alignment is atrocious, tyres are hard and terrible, and there is a it of a knock from the front left suspension area. I'll work on getting it somewhat presentable, and then the plan is to take it to a Gtir enthusiast mechanic for a full going over.
