    My McLaren GT - Ownership Thread

    Looks great DRZ. Regarding your comments on the pace of the 720S I wholly agree...I had the pleasure of being taking out for a ride at one of yesteryear's OcUK motors meets and frankly I was astonished that anything so fast could wear a numberplate. I drive an F80 M3, a fast car by any...

    Nice, love a Blower. I also love the fact that the wheel hammer is neatly stored under the bonnet :D

    Stolen car insurance claims - How Long?

    What kindai said, normally protected NCBs allow you to make so many claims against them before they start reducing your NCB.

    Exactly. In my case I wasn't worried about it because they'd already confirmed all the issues would be fixed under warranty.

    That's fully comp with £250 excess. It might be slightly more than £100/month now that I think about it, but it's in that ballpark anyway. Still reasonable, and I've claimed off it once so far (I'm just starting the third year now). Claim amount I guess came to around £1800-2000, though I...

    Yes, it does My F80 is under BMW warranty, pay monthly. I started it with the car on 55k miles, and it's now on close to 85k miles. The monthly prices increase a little each year, basically an inflationary rise, but I think I pay ~£95/month compared to £88/month when I first took it out 3...

    Land Rover driver fined after causing cyclist to fall off

    I'm a bit with you on this, however under the recently updated highway code giving cyclists priority (for safety purposes) over cars etc. the land rover SHOULD have stopped, allowed the cyclists to pass him, then carry on with his journey.

    AFAIK the comp exhausts are black, but glass black and not sure if painted...I'd be cautious with wire wool & autosol etc...

    E9x had it too, but it was removed as Fox says with F3x :(

    Personally I've always found iDrive to be very intuitive and easy to use. Can't help with all the fancy stuff you've got in your new motor though, sorry Greebo!

    I went from F21 M135i to F80 M3 and have driven both extensively on the road (both >60k miles around the UK and Europe) and enough time on track in both to believe I can confidently call the differences between an "M Lite" (I hate the term - there's nothing "M" about them!) and a full-fat M car...

    This is entirely true, but it's not an M3. No one should buy one thinking it's going to be like an M3. That doesn't detract from it being an excellent car with a wonderful powertrain.

    I would normally say M3 given it will hold it's value MUCH better than the 340i/440i, however these are not normal times and the prices being demanded for even poor examples seem exhorbitant right now...depending on how quickly the market corrects it could end up depreciating relatively quickly...

    Excellent choice @Blackhawk47 and you've got all the most desirable spec there. I'm also a light interior guy although I've got the Opal white in mine...in need of a good clean at the moment!

    Continental UUHP tyres have always been excellent...until they've worn out 50 miles later and you need a new pair :(

    Well look....you've got the massive electrical wholesaler, CEF. Maybe someone senior (a Catherine or Kate) works for them and wants it?
