I think that's the one that caught my eye as I went past on the m60 the other day. Great spec 👍
Very possibly as it was the only one there, I drove past it for nearly two weeks due to the log book issue on my last car was desperate to get in to it.

But well worth the wait

Looks really smart, congrats on the purchase!!
Personally, I'd be tempted to get the plastic on the front colour coded though.

Hi Gents thanks for all the positive energy over the car just thought I would add some interior pics as was requested, please excuse in dirt or dust the car had been to Cambridge and back and a fair bit of local running about since pick up a week last Friday, I will clean it thoroughly when I get home next weekend.

Apart from the carbon inserts (I personally don't like carbon trim) that's how I wanted mine to look 👌🏻, but at the time put the money for stitching towards something else need in the house.

Lovely looking car.

It's a shame they don't offer the GTS Performance Pack with the option to have leather instead of the alcantara (door trims, central armrest, steering wheel, PDK selector). I would have it if they did that.

After having 4 all leather cars I'm actually liking the Alcantara, I'm finding the steering wheel grippier to hold than the last car with leather, also in the warm weather although only had it two weeks, less sticky than in my last car be interesting to feel difference in the winter, and I know a lot dont like the carbon trim but its much nicer in the flesh so to speak, it also doesnt scratch as easy as the Piano black or show finger marks the same so really happy with that.

Its a case of each to there own if we all liked and wanted the same things wed all be driving drab Teslas.

Problem I find with alcantaraesque steering wheel is that it gets filthy easily and quickly. Easy to clean and comes back like new BUT a pain to clean
