Are any of the dealers giving test drives in the UK yet?

If so, how do you set one up?
pretty sure all the dealers have given test drives to the depositors,so i would think if you can prove you have the ability to buy,then setting a test up shouldnt be too difficult,after all they have the time at the moment,but get in quick as they will be swamped with deliveries in a couple of weeks.I know they are already checking their lists and prompting imminant customers,there are probably over 200 cars awaiting delivery world wide and a logistical nightmare ,everything should settle down again by the end of december,but not the best time for a test drive

Boxer. The London dealer has a demo, white with CB's and as Andy says there is a lull before the inventoried cars are released.

As I understand it, there are probably only 20/25 UK cars outstanding for delivery in 2011 and so all of the others at MPC are for Europe.

So the 3 UK dealers will no doubt be more than happy to accommodate potential purchasers, as I'm sure they will anytime.

Hope I don't sound too grovelly, but nothing but praise for my dealer experience thus far and can’t see it changing, once I am "eventually" an actual customer or for any potential new owners.

The priority was for stage 1 / stage 2 customers earlier this year (not sure if this is still the case). My dealer has 2 demo cars but they may have gone in for their 'updates'.

Hi Boxer

David Tibbetts at McLaren Birmingham.

Tel: 01564 787170

Give him a ring and I am more than sure he would be happy to sort out a test drive.

He does frequent this forum and so should be familiar with you.

Any problems PM me and I will be happy to contact him on your behalf.

I'm so jealous of you Britts... Not only have I not driven my future car; I haven't even seen one in person!!! Some of you already have your cars!
That's what I get for living in Texas...

Much appreciated. As I am just around the corner from Woking, I will try my luck with McLaren London/Alistair first. If a no-go, then will give David a call in Birmingham.

Boxer I would just give David a call no need to try your luck with London, 1st class customer service and he is normally down the Woking area.
