Type R "Surprises"

Hi everyone - I'm new to the CTR community - so new mines not even been delivered yet - it arrives this week. went for a test drive and it was awesome. I was wondering if anyone knows of any hidden features the car may have? I had a Fiesta a few years back and it had an analog speedo but digital odometer if you held that in when you turned the engine on it would send all the dials crazy and the digital dial could do different functions like a digital rev counter etc etc. now i know the fiesta is pants in comparison, but does anyone know anything only true enthusiasts would know?

Hi and welcome to the forum. You made a great choice of car. Had mine almost a year and still look forward to driving it as much as the day i got it.
Have not discovered any hidden features yet though and haven't read about any on here. I'm sure if there were any hidden surprises someone on here would have found them by now.

Hope the days to pick up pass quickly for you
