Sorry yours has still not arrived, i know your OPC well. They are top guys sure they are pushing hard. Had a go in the LG car at PEC last week forgot had good it looked with matching trim.
Yes the dealer is great and it’s not their fault at all thumbup

I was obviously destined to be at the very very end rofl

Lunch and afternoon tea sounds fine and a look at all special stitching options biggrin

My driving style is a bit anti sideways, slicks and wings cars don’t work to well once they start drifting but hey ho it’s not my car so bring it on!

As we had a rare sunny day yesterday went for my first long drive in the RS with my 16 year son..Its an absolute sublime car to drive even on public roads..Despite keeping to the running in protocol and not exceeding 4k revs its already apparent its noticeably quicker than my old 991.2GT3 PDK..I noticed it went i started overtaking Sunday afternoon dawdlers..Its much more than the paper spec 20PS would suggest IMHO.
Even the noise when it gets going is better than i expected after listening to all the scaremongering about the GPFs..However will likely put on a JCR bypass next year, insurance and warranty permitting..
I tried to upload some photos however i've experienced some technical issues when trying to upload on to Pistonheads. The pictures were taken by phone and show a file size of between 8-9 MB in size which i think is the reason as the limit is 2 MB on P'heads..Any technical help would be appreciated..If advice is forthcoming i suggest its given in the same manner as a school teacher would address a dim 6 year old..

ETA I love the aluminium look fuel cap..

Hi Taffy, can’t help you with the pics but the limit is 7k whilst running in so you can enjoy yourself a bit more than you are now!

JCR did a lot of testing today at silverstone and was very complimentary about the cars and how strong they are. Maybe AP’s comment about this being the engine to have wasn’t bks after all!

Shows how ignorant i am as i was merely copying the run in procedure on my GT3..7K up to 1000 miles sounds a lot more fun..I'd love to have been at SS today to see how JC is getting on with the new RS..

Click on this link :

https://imgur.com/

Click on the green "New Post" tab in the top left hand corner.

That will open another page. Click on "Choose Photo/Video"

That will take you to your PC's file options or phone's Images.

Go to the Picture file on your PC (or on your phone, it'll take you to your photo albums. Open the album and tap the image you want to upload) Open the file on your PC then click/highlight the image you wish to upload, then click on the "Open" tab.

That will take you back to the Imgur upload page, when the image has uploaded it will appear in the centre of the page.

Hover the cursor over the image, and in the top right hand corner you'll see a small box with three dots in it.

Click on that box and it'll open a tap with three options, the second one down is "Get share links". Click that and then go to the line that says (BBC Forum) click the green tab that says "Copy link" and paste that link into your post on here.



No file reduction required, and the image can be viewed in it's full fat form by opening it in a new tab and clicking on it.

Thanks to Slippy's help i've managed to download a photo of my RS in the wild.clap.
If Slippy wants a career change may i suggest he becomes a teacher..Anyone who can teach someone like me to carry out a complicated process with 100% in the first attempt is a natural.teacher

Lovely Taffy. I like the bit of menace it has.
Great choice on the wheels too.
