Nice one, I never got pics of mine in build, only 1 or two really.
Exciting times, and things move really fast now.
I see you don't have side panels , same as me. I made my own, and the difference is massive.
Car is much warmer and I mean MUCH with them. Driving in low temps i.e. Less than 10 degrees is challenging for any distance.
Love mine to bits though and your gonna have some fun in 2018 for sure.

Actually I have gone for the panels - I spoke to one of the development drivers and he told me they were a must

I also invested in a heated jacket!

Ah yea I see the lugs now, removing them in summer is also essential, I have been fried in there also.

Same set up as I have, the skid brake is great for off road use, as the Nomad has a poor steering lock.

Hi All,

I have a Nomad on order and hopefully take delivery towards the end of this year. I'm in bit of a dilemma on what to do spec wise... any help would be appreciated!

Looking to use it extensively to drive around Europe, but living on a farm I can see myself throwing it about in the fields etc. any thoughts/suggestions would be great.

Cheers!

Hi

Mine just got delivered. It’s awesome, despite the cold.

Given the way they keep their value I think you can go quite mad on the options list and not be mad.

I would certainly go SC (which needs oil cooler / clutch / Big brakes) and the Ohlins suspension is lovely and covers track day to quarry set up. Screen and side panels also a must.

Congratulations Neilsss2! Are you on Instagram? I try to keep track on all the Nomads to be able to invite people to drive outs etc.
