  • Usual topic! It's arrived, questions, etc....

    Afternoon. It was delivered a couple of days ago, and I'm impressed so far. I like the muti-adjustments on the seats, the comp/stereo controls on the steering wheel and the cruise control. I also don't mind the weird logic-based indicators although they do take a bit of getting used to. Seats excellent, although I'm glad I'm not fat.

    Nice, gruff, torquey engine. Overtaking is nice and easy, no fuss. Very different from the CTR. Might be a bit tight tho at the moment (300 miles?) but still feels pretty responsive. Sport button should be standard settings, imho. Got no idea really regarding handling yet, except it feels like it might be a bit difficult to gauge breakaway with such enormous wheels.

    Bad things.

    Lots of tyre noise, stereo quality poor. There's also a couple of rattles - haven't really investigated yet, but sounds like it could be in the back somewhere. MPG hovering around 24 at the moment, even with mostly dual carriageway blasts to the westcountry. Other than that, it's excellent.

    Questions.
    Is that really a sunglasses holder where the driver side grab handle is?
    Can I expect a bit more power after a few more miles?
    Bit strange the noise from the back on full boost, innit?
    Also, where can I get some mats without paying £60 ****ing quid for them?

    Yup.

    Hmmm, yup a little.

    Yup. It's the best. I don't want to change my standard exhaust - it's perfect.

    Nope. You cant unless you get em from Ebay.

            If u guys put T99 in, give it half a tank, and notice how, for some reason, you "want" to keep downchanging and flooring it. Feel the aggressive stance, hear that more frantic "ferrari" rasp and see ur MPG temporarily average at 17-19mpg!!!
