I can echo those comments too, collected my DMG one this afternoon and the drive back up to Glasgow was great. The car has great poise on the road and caused alot of interest with people taking pics and pulling alongside to gawp hahaha.

Wow. Just wow.

I'm a bit frazzled after blitzing back through pre-Easter traffic, but I'll post up more pics and words tomorrow.

I think they are getting rid of more tomorrow.

Am sure it is a case of when they get a delivery in they prep the cars and get them to the customers as soon as.

I know Middlehursts were expecting another batch of cars yesterday, how quickly they turn them around i dont know.

Congrats to all new owners, the cars look incredible. Cant wait to join you all.

Yup, Premium Edition. A good match for DMG, which is why I changed my order from Black Edition.

However, they had a Black Edition DMG in the showroom and the wheels are NOT black, just very dark grey and they look pretty good too!



Another shot of mine. Chris Rutter from Evo took some stunning pics from this location. Look out for them in Evo issue 131.



It was a truly nostalgic experience for me, returning to Middlehursts after so many years.
It was great to see Andy again and to meet Chris Batho.
Gary who did my handover is possibly the most knowledgeable R35 GT-R person in the western hemisphere!

Thanks to the whole team for making delivery such an occasion. :thumbsup:

So, which was best with DMG? Try not to be biased!

Premium Edition in my opinion. It looks colour coded.

The Black Edition wheels would look sharp on a white or silver car, and of course, very stealth on a black one like this:

Totally agree David :thumbsup:

How is the rear numberplate type parking sensors?
Haven't really tested them yet, but at least they don't involve cutting into the rear bumper!

Rear view camera on the MFD would really have been the best solution.
Maybe that will be an option on the Sat Nav cars?

The epic traffic jams yesterday gave me loads of time to play with the MFD settings, great fun.

But the way this car drives on twisty roads is simply extraordinary.
