    You are luckier than I am, my kids seem to spend all my airmails

    I am still reeling from the acceleration and sound of this car. Not really a big Maclaren fan but it's fair to say, I'm wholly impressed with the 675LT
    IMHO, the 675LT is the best car McLaren has produced since the F1. Only thing that will probably top it is the Senna.

    Thank you. Much appreciated.
    I wouldn't sit there if I were you, it's still a bit wet.

    My pleasure. We also have a Mercedes ML 550 and it has been completely issue free. Both of us prefer the Merc over the Cayenne.

    Really funny to read this now almost exactly a year since I commented it - with the reasons I couldn't bring myself to buy a McLaren.

    Not only have I bought one, I've actually bought exactly this model. Subliminal?

    Still have the same worries I had a year ago mind you!

    Can't say yet - deposit paid, planned collection date is 27th.

    I was unconvinced after the first test drive, but the second test drive was on roads I knew - and I was very very impressed. Really looking forward to it.
