    Sandicliffe Leicester really looked after me. Apparently it was one of the first two for sale to arrive in the UK. They booked some production slots at Flat Rock on spec months ago so just “hijacked” one for me!

    Yeah! In every way! But the dealership originally told me June for delivery. Then a couple of weeks after that they let me know they had previously booked some production slots on spec and just amended one for my order. Flat Rock came through and it came in as one of the first two for sale apparently.

    What’s your opinion so far
    Auto or 6 speed
    Does exhaust live up to expectations

    Love the active exhaust! Just the most fun

    You can set the quiet start mode to default between certain times too so you don’t have angry neighbours!

    I got manual. Since I couldn’t preview the magneride or auto box before I ordered it (there were none to look at) I suppose I just played safe. The manual box is much the same feel as the 17 - nice positive short shift. The ratios mean you need to lift the revs to get the power but anything north of about 3500 is pretty snappy. The digital dials are pretty handy for watching the revs and I think now more than just a gimmick. When you get the Rev counter up as a horizontal strip it really helps focus your eye on the range.

    I really wanted the orange fury. I’m sure it will look amazing! Reminds me of the Boss 302. The conversation to swap my BMW 428 (see what I did there went really well at home right up until the colour chart came out. Then the foot came down and we compromised!

    I really liked the Orange Fury in the pictures I'd seen but when it first came into the dealership I didn't like it. It looked very flat and not at all shiny or eye catching. But a few days later after they'd polished and waxed it 'WOW' the difference was unbelievable. It took me a bit but I eventually talked the other half round .Before and after pics.
