Well it has been some time and thought I should give a little update. The car has now turned 5 and just had its 5th service,
Currently mileage 22’500
Miles covered this year 3500

I have used the car as much as possible, gym, shopping, drives out, general life duties. It continues to draw very positive attention and continues to be completely reliable.
I did plan a euro trip but it fell through, I did however get out to nurburgring , I didn’t plan on taking it round, but ended up doing 1 very conservative lap , it was a good trip, and an amazing place.

I have just had the 5th service carried out which includes a coolant change , total cost £1300
I also decided to renew the warranty again £2950 ( increases by £500 next year as it’s over 5 years old )
My front undertray has a few scrapes , mainly from last years nc500 trip , so I decided to replace it. £300 ish
Mot £50

Before the car went in I did mention a couple of niggles, firstly I felt a little engine movement at times, asked them to check the engine/gearbox mounts for wear.
The drivers door strut was ever so slightly slower than the passengers.

During service, the car got a clean bill of health, apart from the issues I mentioned, they always comment how clean the car is, partly my ocd !!

The issues I raised were rectified under warranty , all engine mounts and drivers door strut replaced

Mcglasgow have been excellent as always

Sorry to hear the cars hit you with a big bill , annoying.
I wonder if this corrosion was surface corrosion only that could have been cleaned up/re protected. I was in the other day and seen your’s on the ramp. Our cars are always in around the same time.
I actually sent you an email the other day, possibly went to junk.

Glad you're still loving it and using it! Lovely colour that on the 570 I think.

Fantastic car and so stunning in VY.

Glad you kept hold of it.

Brucey bonus is that it is worth far more now than when you advertised it. thumbup

I guess you guys know Scott the service manager has departed...

Yes, I did speak to him before he left. I had a very good relationship with him, having had the car for almost 3 years he has always been my point of contact. If I ever rang he only ever needed my first name to know who I was and what car was mine.

I have zero complaints about Mcglasgow, they are part of the reason I have kept the car so long.

I would like to jump into a 720 , and they have offered me the demo they have in to see what I think.
They have a volcano yellow 720s at the moment which has sold, I wasn’t a fan of the interior colour and I do love the buckets in mine but I would have been very tempted to jump into it.

For the money I don’t think anything out there compares to a 540/570s.

Like popping in to read peoples like about their macs. nearly bought one a few years ago in fact it was Justins red one that I had a drive in before he bought it ..the px on my Spyder was so way out .Scott was the service advisor not the service manager as the service manager is Eddie who also does Bentley ..

Eddie has been Bentley / McLaren aftersales manager for a long time now.

Pretty sure I was the second owner of this car. Loved every minute of it. Good to see it is being loved, enjoy.
