So how strange is this then, had a call from dealer, he checked the build for my 45, and it was confirmed built and on it’s way to Emden. He said they would expect it to be with them within 3 weeks.

My 45 was ordered with moonstone grey, pan roof, DCC, HUD, HK, Pro Nav, digital key, winter pack with heated rear seats, rear view camera and proactive passenger protection.

He further added they have just as of today had more build confirmations.

So good news coming folks.

That’s great news and it’s a great car, only done just over 60 miles but it’s brill, love the headlights, the exhaust etc and touch wood no software gremlins or lag to speak of.

I know there are many variables but mine arrived at Emden on Oct 22nd and then at the dealer November 09th. Hope you get it soon!

4 hours later, the prep is complete. The car especially the wheels look so better better in the flesh.

Let’s hope ( for the Cordyline’s) there are no severe frosts this winter, unlike 2010 when few survived.  :grin:

@Paul70; Looks great. I really like the Clubsport 45’s wheels, and that’s from someone who doesn’t normally like black alloys :smiley:.

You should see my Hydrangeas Exonian  :wink:

Thanks for the comment on the car, I know white is your preferred choice of colour.

The car came on Hankook Ventus S1 evo 3 tyres which seem OK. What are your experiences with these tyres ? Would have preferred the Goodyear Super Sports.

I watched a video of some South African guys tracking a gti running those. Their experienced driver had only good things to say.

However that's the track, not about road noise or wear or uk weather.

I've no idea.

My gti is on bs s005's

Thanks for the feedback fredgroves.

Initial impressions are positive, there’s certainly plenty of grip and the feel is OK too.
