Some questions from a new owner

I've taken my first step into the world of McLaren, just purchased a 570GT (taking delivery on Friday as I'm traveling atm). I've followed McLaren for years and with all the Porsche and Lotus Emira delays I suddenly wondered if a pre-owned McLaren was possible. And it was. Still feels somewhat surreal but am excited to get behind the wheel.

I am planning to drive the 570 fairly regularly but not as a daily driver and likely not at the track. Given touring and weekend trips are the focus, I had some questions:

  • Is the trickle charger from McLaren a must or will something like one from CTEK do the job? The dealership are offering me one for $350 which seems steep.
  • Related, I thought the engine bay on the 570GT was sealed (or at least not easily accessible), where are the charge points for the battery?
  • Any suggestions on luggage that fit the frunk?

Finally, think the first addition will be a front/rear dashcam and I like the setup Invictus had using a completely separate battery so I'll probably run with that. Still deciding on the actual cam but the BlackVue DR900X-2CH looks pretty solid.

That'll do for now, any help would be great.

Looks like you’re in Palo Alto. So am I, waiting on the return of my 12C. Congratulations on the purchase, hope to see you around.
