As always, David has put on an excellent show and even put up with my nephews, who would put the durability of any product to their sternest test!!

seeing this car in Singapore made me decide to order the special ops gloss black roof and name-embossed CF door sills. The offical impact of these extras is supposed to be two weeks, but a UK Dealer who shall remain nameless laughed when I mentioned that and said "more like two months!" I've waited 14, 2 more no prob.

I ordered the black roof as well and the louvers in the front fenders...so you think tack on an additional 2 months

Saw the car in Singapore and did not like the matt VO. Love the black roof though. May do a vinyl wrap on the roof on my orange car. Was told by my dealer it's at the final production stage.

lots of interesting bits at Manchester tonight,a few different variants on the wheels look good and extra carbon options.First really long drive in bad weather,traction control worked well when i booted it in the rain and went sideways,only to realise i was in sport/sport and it wasnt rain it was sleet over the pennines.
So thought it would be prudent to press the Winter button,it didnt work???
(should have read the manual).Think again and press the active button first,all very lodgical.From then on impeccable manners.
Drove back 120 miles over the Yorkshire mountains at 2500 rpm averaging 28.1 mpg,you can work out the speed.What was most impressive was it very very windy,everything was moving about except us.That windy cars were driving carefully and the 12c was JUST PLANTED.
just to note that the difference between going there into a head wind was only 1mpg less.
