Yeah I’ve had that too. Went in last week to get it done and they couldn’t do it because of the internet not working, I gave up and came home. My adaptive cruise is working fine so I’m loathe to waste another morning trying to get it sorted, will wait until service unless they really start nagging me.Had another recall today for front radar. Just me? That's two so far
I have this thing for the weekend as I am dropping it off for a friend on Monday to have some work done to its bespoke exhaust. I drove it around 140 miles last night, mainly motorway and them local roads I know well for around 5 miles.
This car is running a fully bespoke exhaust and Nitrons (not Ohlins) and feels very very sharp, the roll is significantly reduced. The ride is much stiffer as to be expected, but it makes a very very dynamic car on the right roads, tiring on the wrong ones.
The seats, for me, are still poor. Too short under my leg, lacking in support on the corners, too high (I am long body so also a me issue) and not that comfy BUT, I now get the appeal having driven this one on the right roads (and following 3 of them for 2 days solid). It is VERY fast on tight confine roads and the steering on this car very dynamic and the biggest surprise, love the brake feel.
Gearbox makes me realise (sorry) that I am past the manual thing. Give me paddles now, I've lost the gearbox mojo finally (@Tax Evader you were right) but I still enjoy heal toe, but it feel so sluggish nowadays.
Not a me car still, but I can see why others enjoy them. The way it puts its power down, sticks and moves around are really sorted. Great brakes, great steering (might be helped by Nitrons as it felt better than I recall) and fun on the right roads. This one is boomy at motorways speeds and moves around on cambers so tiring but get it on the right roads, epic fun.
Yes it is well planted. It is a friends car, so miles of the limit but I'd argue still 'enough' the challenge the car. I have a road I know like the back of my hand. Twisty, tight, very bumpy and cambers from hell and it really did nail that road last night when I passed through. Impressive and as you said it seems to be hard to unsettle. My Merc for example would move around more on the same road. In Wales they were quick as all of use on the tight stuff, only when the road opened up or tight bend into long straight were the power of the faster cars left them.....for dead.The stand out feature for me is how confidence inspiring it is on bumpy awkward bits of road. The body never feels like it's getting away from the wheels, if you know what I mean. I actually find the seats super comfy but agree they need some more bolstering. The gear change is also really nice (nicer than my GT4 which is saying a lot).
Think I'm gonna have to up my game.I think the technique people use is pester a range of dealers all over the country. Or there are a few nice used ones about, a quicker option.
Had mine a year now, still a bit undecided whether to keep or move on or a little mod’ing
