  1. Your wife has a husband in Germany?
  2. Good point, I hadn’t thought of that. They must use RC’s rather than F’s for the modding in Japan. I guess it’s more about show than go...
  3. Autumnal leaves, shorter evenings, frost on the lawn...there is no surer sign that winter is on its way than the obligatory winter tyres thread on the F forum. I would love to run my F on a smaller set of split rims in the winter, with a winter tyre with more sidewall to make up the difference (from the Japanese sites the RCF looks f-ing amazing with 15’s and more tyre wall). But I’m no good at working out the maths, or sourcing the tyres, also I don’t have enough money and I’d never get around to swapping the wheels anyway...so I just go with my part warn Michelin’s cross my fingers and hope they find some grip!
  4. https://www.esquire.com/lifestyle/cars/a28451794/corvette-mid-engine-c8-interior-photos/ interior looks pretty good.
  5. This is quite a good summary... Stingray vs similar performance / price competition
  6. I thought it was quite a good review until he referred to it as a super-saloon...

  8. It’s amazing how GFV’s go up and ARP comes down once a car has been sat on the forecourt for a year!
  9. Do they do it in Carbon? I’d worry about it being too heavy... 😂🤣
  10. Hmmm. I must drive in a little more ‘spirited’ way than that - my rear tyres lasted 11,000 miles (But then I have also only averaged 19.6mpg in the 14,000 miles of driving so far). The fronts are fine though (!). As for the 2 for 1, it was available last May when I got mine. And it was still available this year when I was in the dealer for the service so I guess so (my dealer chucked in the two year warranty as part of my purchase).
  11. Yeah, but my understanding is that if you bend the track they make you mend that too...and a section of Armco is €400 and there’s three on top of one another so if you hit one you hit three. And then if you spill oil as a result of any crash and that causes a further crash then the costs of that repair is on you too. And if they have to close the ring to sort it out...they charge you for the lost revenue. At which point - I’m out.
  12. Kindred spirits...couldn’t help park next to it at Sainsbury’s
  13. Interested to know who you insured through, I would love to go but the daily insurance bump just seems insane. But maybe I got a silly quote and have been put off by bad information.
  14. I’ve heard that if you de-tune the engine a little to comply with latest exhaust regulations so that it makes a bit less power, add a big wing on the back and pay for journalists to have an amazing holiday at an international motor racing circuit of their choosing the RCF is much quicker and handles as well as anything else on the road.
