Just would like to know what owners and perspective owners that live a long distance from their dealer have been told / experienced regarding routine maintenance like oil changes, routine checks based on the maintenance schedule etc. I am seriously considering getting a 12C and know from some Ferrari / Lambo owners that had a tech come once or twice a year to the city to do such things before dealerships were opened here. I live in Calgary which 6E you know is about 2700 kilometres from Toronto.

Im sure they will come up with something similar,as the first service is at 10k miles or annually and that seems to be a check over and oil and filter.The first big service is at 20k miles or 2 years,and a great excuse for a road trip!!!

I suspect it will be cheaper to trade the car in for a new one. You have to be practical when living in the Boon Docks ( is that how you spell it?).

Thanks Andy for the maintenance schedule I didn't think the oil would last that long especially being turbocharged, and yes it would make for a a good road trip especially on some of the long stretches of straighaways to see what is capable of (definitely would require a radar dector)

LOL! Actually RIC Calgary is a very modern city with almost as many head offices as Toronto, and there is a lot of oil money here its just that McLaren has only chosen 1 dealer for all of Canada for now. I suspect the next one may open in Vancouver British Columbia which is about an 8 hour drive or so if you drive the speed limit. Besides William and Kate were here last year for a visit during the Calgary Stampede (a big 10 day party) and they really enjoyed themselves!

Scary thing is you dont need long stretches,anything more than a few seconds on full throttle in the right gear(anygear) and you have to back off as your easily at double the speed limit and more:eek:
