He replied he hadn't of any changes so was somewhat surprised. He said he'd look into it? And from what I've read of other dealers the guys at SF Mac seem to be pretty on the ball?

This is very interesting, I will get on it as well...I do know that the McLaren Internal Portal system is down for another 10 days or so as they transition to a new OS...not sure what is available.

i actually prefer the older 3 windowed look because it has some angles to it like the sides are angled out, the new dash is 1 big flat piece which i don't like

We have a 2016 570S with the three screens and I think the new single one looks better. Also the 2017 has that little raised area for the locking sensor which is a nice improvement over mine as finding the touch sensor in ours always feels like trial and error. Well done on minor improvements from year to year McLaren! I was particularly vocal about that lock sensor so I'm glad to see they paid some attention to it.

Noticed the 17's with serial around 2300'ish 12/16 build and beyond have new screens.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm not a fan of the display being square while the surrounding dash is curved.

Is the 'info' shown on the new one piece the same as three piece info? Wonder with new updates if old screen will miss some new stuff--hope not.
