when I was at the Manchester Dealership last week, they reckoned their first customer cars were coming in early-August.

As frustrating as the delays are I can't help but think it is good news.

We know the cars are built but require modification to bring them to market condition. Rather have a delay in delivery than the bother of the car going back and forth for mods.

Sure McLaren have bitten the bullet ( and protecting PR ) and responded to revisions -plus the Iris delay is probably out of their hands.

I bought a new model motorbike last year and it has almost been rebuilt with 5 visits to the dealer - great service but very time consuming and with different frustrations.

Trying to be positive here!

PS I have a visit to MPC in a couple of weeks so it will be interesting to get the story from them - and they are very open and straightforward people thus far.

Well worth it I hope. A little price to pay to adopt a completely revolutionary game changer so revisions and bugs are reasonable fact of life. The GTR had blown transmissions when it first came out.

It's now Monday, did they take delivery?
Been put back to Friday at last minute.

I'm expecting mine in 2 weeks, so hope it doesn't mean all cars will be moving back.

I wish my customers were as understanding as supercar buyers are :D
A broken promise is a broken promise and not acceptable:mad:

I used to build custom motorcycles, and the guys who spent the most money, and thus were due a bit more personal attention, were always the easiest to deal with. Always understanding and not ready to jump down my throat at the slightest misstep. The guys spending only a couple hundred bucks on accessories would tear my head off (literally leave 5 minute screaming cursing messages) if an O-ring was missing. Or worse yet, if they'd overlooked that the O-ring was in a bag/box they hadn't opened yet, and were just screaming for the sake of screaming. I even had one customer in Texas scream at me over the phone that his hardware wasn't working. I flew out there on my dime to fix the problem. The idiot couldn't be bothered to read the big stamped "In" and "Out" on an oil cooler, and had it installed backwards. Needless to say, I tore into him until he agreed to return my airfare.
