First thing I wondered about because of the differing reports about steering feel that I'd read, I'd already planned to have the geo checked when I get my car in May/June. I was thinking about contacting Centre Gravity for some advice and possibly have them set the car up.

While most cars have quite a range of in spec settings, there can be optimum settings that are usually found by experience or the knowledge that people like CG have.

I had my Honda S2000 Geo set up at CG and it was a different car, stability at high speed (100mph+) was sacrificed for more feel and less understeer at lower speeds. Best £250 I've ever spent on a car.
And check the tyre pressures! Quite a few cars have had very high pressures for delivery that haven’t been checked before handover will make a big difference.

Thanks. That's not a bad build and delivery time but I guess you missed the ramp up in demand after the UK reviews went live.

Bit like the Fiesta ST discussion in the other thread upended, it's not the same, and while some are shopping for something in the GRY category and/or price bracket, quite some of us weren't shopping for any car, in any price bracket (up to a varying degree obviously). Other cars don't matter, we just want the GRY...
Can we make this a sticky? hehe

I didn’t want another hatchback, I was planning on getting an Elise next, but the lack of rear seats and boot for occasional kid and bike ferrying meant I started looking at plus two alternatives, few and far between. I considered a GT-86 with a Cosworth supercharger most recently.

I would never usually consider a brand new car either. Paying VAT on a car is for mugs.

Then I booked a test drive of the GRY to see what all the fuss was about, and confirm that I definitely wouldn’t even fit in the driver’s seat. I walked back in the showroom and said ‘yes, I’ll take one’.

This is the one fly in the ointment for me as using it as my work car/daily driver it'll do 12-15000mls a year so that works out to be quite expecive servicing costs compared to my current work horse which asks for a service every 16000mls.

Had the message today to say that mine has started build. Originally the dealer said end feb/early March for delivery, I’m in no rush, not even got hold of a test drive yet.

How long have others taken to arrive after build start?
Ooh now it has finished build, the dot is now on ‘left the factory’ just a tick away from getting on the boat.

I think I’m in the minority of I’d prefer it to be later in the year, when hopefully it’ll be possible to use it! Still a few weeks to decide I guess.

Do 6k a year and servicing costs look pretty reasonable. Do 12 or more and you are getting up to Porsche prices.

My car is due in April/May happy to be in the minority of delivery later in the year,If life out there is still looking to be on lockdown by then I’ll change the colour of the order to delay it by some months.

I think Toyota are anticipating that it will be driven quite hard. To be fair ... I change the oil on my GT4 (which gets a lot of track use) every 3000 miles. This Toyota check is £50 if not concurrent with an annual or 6000 mile service when it's free ?

McLaren insist that for track work cars should be checked before and after each outing ...

I would be interested to see actual overall running costs for a 6-cyl Cayman and a 991 doing 12-15k miles a year for 3-5 years.

Anyone? ears

As for the running costs I definitely prefer for a high performance car a more frequent oil change. My M2 gets serviced every 30k or 2 years which is really long if you track the car. So I have to do in between intervals. Also engine oil and filters costs almost the same even for a Porsche....

620mipes it’s in the manual. Basically easy on the brakes and easy on the accelerating or words to that affect.

No comparison the Porsche will be leagues ahead in terms of bills. My 981S only does minimal miles per year but will still cost lots more than a Yaris. Warranty alone is over a grand for the 2 years that it would need to be a fair comparison to the Yaris.
