So we have news.

The wife took a day off and got a 3 hour train to get the car. I work other end of country and a contractor so couldn't book a day off.

She is here. Still smells like a new car inside haha. Only driven it for about 20 miles so far. Just brings me back to when we had one for a month on hire in 2017 just lovely cars.

The sound..... Omg I don't even think its worth getting a mid muffler delete. But the whine from the supercharger does it for me. But tbh I just took it easy. It's not bad having a left hooker in UK I didn't find it a problem tbh. Also the orange blind spot lights are ace. Really digging the satin bonnet too.

So I went out in it yesterday but being in UK we love rain so it was forecast rain in afternoon. So only went out for an hour before it came in.

It certainly is fast. Not even gunned it really just getting used to. It's dry today so going over to my mates later. It literally just fits in the garage too 🤣

Yeah was gutted I couldn't get it Friday but I'm on day rate and wife had days leave to use. She said people were flashing waving at her on the way home lol. After the pic some mustang eco boost parked next to me🤣

That whine from the charger is the best 😝 IMG_20191109_123917.jpg

really digging the satin bonnet. Went over to see my mate whos got the m5 v8. Went for a cruise, such a beautiful car, all the gadgets inside and comfy. I got a catch can to fit and a barton shifter also. Just about fits in my garage as well with a few inches to spare. Im going to put my private reg on it ROB 576.

question. Can i just use hand car wash people? Im getting it ceramic coated etc before xmas but i got to wait in the mean time.

I don't think that there is an eco mode...other than a very soft right foot maybe...

Out n about on this chilly day that building is the arch way to the merevale Estate where King Richard the 3rd and his army stayed the night before the battle of Bosworth in 1485 ending the English civil war called, war of the Roses. The last monarch to die in battle.
His body was found a few years ago under a car park near Leicester. Some history for you 👍
