  1. Congratulations 👏👏👏👏 absolute beauty.
  2. Thanks 👍 had a peak and looks entertaining. Need to get myself down there although I’ll be on foot with no wheels to show off.
  3. Is this place/event/meeting you mention at Dunkerswell airfield? I’ve flown in there a few times. If so it’s too far to drive as I live up near Silverstone but could fly down and hang out next time. That’s not fair at all. What’s the reason? It’s been up for sale a long time and I even had an interest back in November but pulled out in favour of the one I got.
  4. Very nice car that👌Well done.
  5. A great and interesting story Sir. I hope you enjoy your new wheels in good health.
  6. I received my CoP a few weeks back after almost a 3 month wait and to be honest I felt a bit disappointed. Most of what it tells me is on my cars purchase receipt I got from the dealer. I was really interested to know how many cars in total were built and what countries etc but it just tells me my car is number 20 out of 25 UK cars and that’s it!! it would also have been nice to find out the split between manual vs auto etc. I think if the car was 20-30yrs old and been lost in time or something it may have been a different story but suppose as my car is only 2yrs old theres not much to say about it really. Would be interested to see what you get back and how it compares.
  7. Congratulations on a very nice looking car and happy Birthday for when that gets here.🥳🍻
  8. I’ve just been reading that it’s release is imminent so watching with interest. I have a GT430 but doubt/hope I’m not drawn towards changing.
  9. Hiya, just picked up on this and read through. I’ve not personally made any progression down this road. I’ve got mine booked in for it’s first service, exhaust valve switch and wheel alignment and once this is done will relook.
  10. Had a look at their site and they have an extensive range of products so I’m going to give them a bell tomorrow and see what they say. I saw the Dynax UC which they have as a new product under anti corrosion waxes. This looks promising as it dries clear which I think may be better for what I’m wanting to achieve. Have you used this yourself?
  11. Great thanks 🙏 Had a look at their website and it does look very good so watched the application video of the guy spraying a truck. He didn’t seem to have much PPE on and it all came across a big amateur so did leave me wondering how long lasting or good it will actually be. Will try and find some threads on Facebook and see what people are saying.
  12. Any recommendations for protecting the underside and wheel arches etc from winter crud and road salt? Want to use my car as much as possible through the winter months but not at the expense of having corrosion issues. Looking for simple effective solutions that don’t leave a sticky residue or have to be professionally applied etc. I’ve seen ACF50 but believe that will need to be reapplied frequently and also Rocal PX32 but I think that stays tacky and attracts the dirt. Any experience with these or other products?
  13. I’d like to be added to the list please if it’s still active.
  14. £1-2k sounds much better and so much easier to justify. Will be interesting to hear what they say next week if you do ask them.
  15. Seating position does feel high but I was expecting that based on various posts and comments I’d read. Got used to that straight away. Lots of sliding the seat and wheel around to get the most comfortable position so it was only the lumber support which i need to address long term. I do find this a lots in cars so have to fine tune to get just right. When the weather warms up next year I’ll change the dampers about but can’t say I’d be spending over £7k for the convenience of doing it from the cockpit. Do you drive yours all through the year? I’d like to but don’t know how they weather especially with salted roads. The underside does look very well protected though with a huge aluminium plate across the whole lot keeping the elements out.
  16. Managed my first proper run out in the car Friday and have to say so far I absolutely love it. It didn’t feel as firm as I initially thought on the early morning country road short 1mile trip to the detailer last week. This drive was more A roads with plenty of twists and turns and I started to feel really at home after an hour. Although saying that I did find I had to place my rolled up jacket behind me for a bit of lumber support as I started to get the usual nagging pain I find without something there. Looking forward to the next outing now.
  17. Well I’ve taken delivery and now had the full detail, Xpel PPF and ceramic coating completed so almost ready to roll. It’s looking stunning so thought I’d post a few pictures. The guys did a fantastic job and really went to town bringing its best out.

    would just like some slightly warmer and drier weather so I can venture out on its maiden voyage without fear of coming a cropper on cold rubber, wet roads and lots of power.

  19. Wow that’s interesting. Just had a quick search and seems to be popular in the motor bike world. Think I’ll make contact with @thekevlarkid see what he’s done. Excellent thank you 👍
  20. Yep great video Bibs, I’m def sold on this and interested in knowing more about the car. Just had a look in the membership area and can’t see anywhere to upgrade my current subscription as the only option seems to be to purchase new. Any ideas if an upgrade is at all possible?
  21. I’ve only managed a short drive to the detailers so far but have to say first thing I’ve noticed is its a very stiff and firm ride. Might have to play about with the damper settings see how that changes the ride. Will also look at the alignment as well 👍 Very exciting times though and very much looking forward to some quality time with it. Thanks for that, will have a look at upgrading as it’d be nice to know the facts and figures etc.
  22. Thanks, don’t see many cars in green especially in this solid colour finish.
