Hi folks,

I had a 12C spider before and recently traded it in towards this gorgeous new Paris Blue 720S....needless to say, I am smitten! This car is absolutely boinkers in so many ways beyond what I can put into words.

I had a couple of questions for you boys and girls.

1) Is there a break-in procedure for this car? If so, what is it? I only found something about "breakdown" in the owner's manual.
2) What is the recommended tire pressure for the front and rear tires? Mine seemed a bit low at 32 PSI in front and 30 PSI in back.
3) Is there a way to reduce the volume for those turn signals? It's so freaking LOUD!
4) Is there a way to turn off the "auto engine shut down" feature...it's so freaking annoying having to push that button every time I start the car.

Oh and yeah...the photos...gotta have the photos!

Wow, great pics, that is a stunning spec! Interior shots, please.

In my 570S, I defeat auto shutdown by selecting "active" and shift for myself, no auto shutdown in that mode.

Great Looking car “Justin”...Lol, inside Joke ;)

Where are those European side markers?
Inner liners are damaged so waiting for new parts before putting those on...soon...soon....and LOL LOL LOL! You also called me by another name too....must be the J thing. :)

Thanks for the heads up..the breaks seem to be squealing a lot so I probably need to "re-bed" them. I also noticed a "beep" sound whenever I almost come to a stop. Must be the parking sensors?

Thanks for the tip on hitting the active button..that'd work!!!

Conrats! did you get this from McLaren Boston? LOVE THAT COLOR!!
oh no....got it from McLaren Bellevue. They FINALLY opened one here. Was getting tired of having to drive up to Vancouver for servicing. I think it's their first 2019. Interesting to note that the 2019 now has a vented cover in front of the side vane opening. I'm told that rocks tend to go through there leaving chips on the sides.

Here's a photo with the trifeca...Pista isn't out yet but once it's out we'll have to take a "re-do" shot. And an interior shot too...it's plain inside except for lots of carbon.

Congrats, beautiful car! Seeing owner's cars come in makes the anticipation rise for my car to arrive in November!
