Tiler. I think listing the cars year of manufacture, and not the year you had it would be more beneficial ;)

12c all the way.. In all honesty the Cali was nice, sounded awesome ! But i had loads of issues with it and just didn't find it very practical :( Might have just had badluck but it certainly put me off Ferrari's..

The 12c is a truly amazing machine :) Although i still prefer the GTR for some strange reason :p even though the mac is a better package overall..

Also, Mclaren service is very good which is a big + for me.. Recently just sent over a 650s for us to try out lol, might swap the mp4 for it next year ;) If only Nissan were so generous and send me a Nismo !

I've only had the R8 five days, and have already been on the phone with McLaren London:chuckle:

Was looking at a 2012 car in white. Anything I should be wary of?

Nicce, you have the V8 or V10 ??

Amazing, you will not regret it for sure.. Best car ive ever driven :) Also for UK roads, that hydraulic suspension is a real blessing ! lol

I will ask my bro for any common things to look out for as he drives it more than me and pm you at some point :thumbsup:
