It’s been a while since my last update, the car has now returned from being at Mac Glasgow for it’s 3rd service, end of warranty check, warranty renewal and first MOT.
I had some corrosion on the other drivers side rear 1/4 which they sorted and some other bits picked up on warranty check .

Now after following Davek_964’s 650 thread and him querying the paint not quite matching despite the car never being painted.
I had a very similar issue, in certain light conditions I felt the front bumper nose would look slightly off, I mentioned it and after a little back and forth between Mac Glasgow and HQ they decided to repaint the bumper under warranty.

Again a big thumbs up for Glasgow they have been excellent to deal with again, it took a little longer than expected with the back and forth over the bumper but was all worth it in the end.

I collected it mid morning yesterday and never got home till 9pm, 150 miles later.

It’s just brushed in alternate directions with a soft horse hair shoe brush, this ones a tad big.

I must have just missed you, I was there all day yesterday with mine, for its 3rd service, MOT and warranty.

I'll update my thread tonight or tomorrow. Had a great run back up the road via Braemar on the Old Military Road

I seen you coming in, I was hovering around for a bit before I left. Did you just stay at the garage while they serviced it ?

I’m going up north for a couple of days with a few lads from work. Heading back down to aviemore then I Was gonna planning on doing old military road on the way home

Any suggestions ?

Ah, you should have come and said Hi!

It depends on how long you want to go and how far north?

Old Military road from Blairgowrie up to Braemar is ace, then you can head east before you continue on up over the Tomintoul road. That takes you over to Aviemore.

West Coast, the A82 to Glencoe is also a good one

Top advice Justin.

I did that very trip about 4 weeks ago through Coupar Angus, Blair, old military toad to Glencoe and Glen Etive. About a 300 miles round trip..just fantastic.
