As we all know, or were told, the delivery delays were down to IRIS.

Not heard a thing on these forums or elsewhere if this is now sorted and when deliveries will start.

Anyone else any the wiser?

Perhaps you boys going to Manchester this evening can get an update?

Also, when will the first customer delivery be and do the Manchester cars have working IRIS?

Thanks for your feedback and interesting to note that the real part/point of IRIS still not working and ages away from being fixed.

Considering all of the other R & D that the car has undergone over the last two years, surprised that such an apparently innocuous feature is holding everything up?

Is IRIS more than it makes out to be (probably not given the £5100 option/essential/obligatory component that it is) and will it be the Achilles heel?

My deliver wasn’t originally until Q4, but probably like me, you are getting embarrassed every time someone asks when you will be getting your car.

The McLaren Birmingham demonstrator has been up and running for some time now and even seven weeks ago it has covered over 5000 miles in ongoing pre-production tests!

Doesn’t look at the moment that any actual “real” customer/dealer cars have been produced.

Hope this is not observed as a criticism, as I want McLaren to succeed as much as most posters.

Just taking stock of exactly where we are at and that delivery appears about three months behind the originally planned schedule.

At B'ham luanch next Tuesday and will push for more.
