The S spec type R doesn't even have a radio Tom.
There are three types of R:
Type R S Spec - no air con, radio etc and cost £16,627 (July 2007) and this is the version you should buy for racing as it basically stripped out. This is the one that guy on here who has the champ white race one bought.
Type R - comes without the cooled glovebox, autolights, wipers, mirrors etc cost £17,627 (July 2007)
Type R GT - with all the extra's mentioned above that the R didn't have cost £18,627 (July 2007)
The dealers cannot sell you a S Spec without you specifiying this. Most dealers don't actually know what the S Spec is as its listed in very small print at the bottom of the brochure and advises that you contact your dealer for details lol!!
