Thanks for the welcome guys.

It's a MY2012 in white with Recaro's, pretty much standard other than a few carbon bits.

Is there anything you would recommend doing as a new GTR owner? It had its 24 month service at Kaizer (albeit about two months early) two weeks ago. I also had an inspection done there - we'll worth the £100 and Sly is a very knowledgeable chap! I'm also thinking about having it detailed and paint protected at Griffiths
Can't go wrong with Chris Griffiths. He is a perfectionist, even more OCD than me and a really nice guy to boot.:bowdown1:

Finally got some sun today and managed to finish work early so took it for a spirited drive : ) I took it relatively steady and even so it was absolutely incredible! Not loving the 110 miles to 3/4 tank though! lol

Went via Griffiths Detailing and asked him what he would recommend. He didn't think it needed much but I'm gonna just go with his "gold treatment" and be done. I was very impressed by him and he had a very nice Aventador in too

Haha yea I had thought a lot about modding it before I bought it and for the time being it is plenty quick enough! But who knows in a couple of months time. Although I do find it weird how quiet it is so I might get myself down to Litchfield's for a Y-pipe

By the way does putting the left toggle switch into "R" mode put a different map on?

Left one is the transmission. In R mode the gear changes are quicker in manual and a bit more sporty in auto. If you pop it in R and gearbox in auto and drive with spirit you'll get the car rev matching on downshifts which is pretty cool. I tend to stick with manual gears though and all three switches in R mode...unless the roads are wet!

Ah ok that's interesting thanks. Even the traction control in "R"? - brave man! Lol
