Hmm I am no longer sure that will be the case, latest emission regs mean that component cooling feuling will not be a viable option going forward, this will mean that turbo charged engines are also not really viable so perhaps we will be going full circle and returning to larger capacity N/A for performance engines ( this is one of the issues BMW have recently faced with their M engines).

I believe Mercedes are still working on a new V8, but Aston and McLaren are working on new V6’s, only from what I’ve seen from YouTube.

I truly hope that NA V8 and V12 engines make a comeback.

NA with Hybrid systems also must be getting a look in too, apart from potential precious metal prices being on the ups... great for investment purposes though haha.

Collected the car, great drive home, one slight issue, aircon not working properly. Oh well, that’s what a warranty is for.

And driving into work this morning, the RC reminded me of all the reasons why the IS put a smile on my face every time I got into it, only more so. It really does make it worthwhile getting up in the morning. Just love the car....

Regassed and working... Happy times, trip to the Morgan factory tomorrow for a contrast between old and new.

Went to the Morgan factory last year. Fabulous place, and a very interesting tour. The car park is quite small, so arrive in good time. Make sure you come away with a piece of wood!

The shop is very tempting too...

Do they have a tea shop??

And if so, does it serve bacon butties in the morning??

Pretty sure they do. Malvern is good to walk round as well. A bonus would be a walk up the hills overlooking the factory. Nice drive up through a residential area to a car park, and then an easy hike up. Nothing too strenuous, and the weather looking good for it.

Added some contrast stickers. Makes the F stand out.

Thumbs up or down?

Matt and gloss might look very classy :)

So don't let it put you off another black one when you're back to 'normal'.

My second favourite colour (for the time being Im biased ) and love the later wheel design.

Undoubtedly a beautiful looking car though.

Spotted today at the IWM Duxford. Anyone on here ??

Was down there “working”. Incredible day watching the WWII war birds practicing for the air show at the weekend. What a place.

Very nice. @bernie_the_bolt, is your car the one that was recently for sale at Lexus Liverpool!

Here is one of ours.

Nice too pal. I like that colour nearly as much as mine 😉. Yes, mines the one from Lexus Liverpool.

Ah cool. The dealer (Newcastle) mentioned that they were looking at potentially purchasing your car before Liverpool bought it, when they picked me up from the airport. It must be one of the last registered.

  • Club Hybrid Poll

  • 205 Hybrid Reliability

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
