  1. The McLaren 12c is the best looking car they have built since the F1. I really like the GT Sport Evora's too, but the S1 remains sublime IMHO. Beautiful and understated, elegant and has managed to be timeless so far at least.
  2. Bloody hell I agree with you 100% AGAIN!. You are on fire bud 🙂
  3. Just a full day for an interior and exterior valet including a machine polish. It looks like new again. I had both B panel PPF replaced as one has slight damage but saved the paint. No ceramic coating as that would have meant 2-3 days and approx £1000. My bill was £300. I am very happy with it and recommend them (they are in Carlisle).
  4. The tri stripe is my favourite bit. A moment of inspiration when I specc'd the car, my wife wasn't so keen on the quote I got for the paint
  5. My 9 year old car will all original paint. One owner, 34k miles including many trackdays and road trips. Not looking too shabby
  6. In which case we should tell them to FRO.
  7. We paid £125 for a place in FW. Across at Inverness a room can be had for less in a far superior hotel plus a great breakfast.
  8. If it was a McLaren driver you could always remind them of their Datsun engine in the back
  9. Isn't the Hethel manufacturing capacity circa 5000 units per year? That will hardly put a dent in any of the perceived rivals output
  10. Harry used to be a good egg, or so it seemed to me. Sadly he has fallen for a woman who I can only describe as toxic. She is the ruin of him and it wont end well I fear.
  11. CMC becoming an approved service centre would be great news.
  12. 250k just registers your commitment. Another 250k is needed when you spec your car, then 500k when it goes into build leaving just a further 1 mil on delivery. Its a synch.
  13. My M250 deposit comprised an initial £1000 followed by a further £1500 when Lotus took orders. The dealer went bust but thankfully I got £1500 back as the dealer passed this on to the factory. I'm still waiting for the other £1000. I was lucky, some folk lost £2500. Kinsey Jones the dealer was, if ever I see him I will 'remind' him of the debt.
  14. Did he bother to fasten the chin strap on his crash hat?
  15. When I got the TVS1900 upgrade I also got a geo done too. I have since done circa 9k miles including just one trackday. At the time of the geo a set of new rears were fitted of the non - LTS spec Pirelli's (LTS variant was not available in time). The tyres continue to wear remarkably well without signs of the inner wear trait I experienced before. Maybe worth having the geo checked and adjusted?
  16. Only 100 units planned. It'll be a 7 figure price tag for sure.
  17. The Evija and in that Solaris Yellow does look incredible in the flesh. I travelled about 150 for a viewing at Parks. It was worth every minute of the journey. Superb car.
