  1. Oh. I haven't even washed mine yet... (but I have bought a selection of new wheel brushes - it was time I replaced the old ones...and none of them were long enough for the rear wheels). Need to decide if I'm waxing (R222) this car or GTechniq'ing. Decisions...
  2. I'll have a look at the book and the car at the same time (looked at both, separately) and think it's different to the 4 pots under there, too. A job for the weekend!
  3. 374 now; no more for a couple of weeks as having surgery on my finger next week and consultant has forbidden me from driving until then. Have you fitted a battery conditioner to your Spyder...and, if so, did you go for batter -ve or car -ve?
  4. That looks fantastic! You also have my favourite seats (offered in MY20 Spyders but not in GT4s) which are much, much comfier than the stupid fixed buckets (shoulder things where my shoulder blades are) and which can be had heated...which is quite desirable on an open car!
  5. I have had too many black cars (not that many cars...but always at least one black car for the last couple of decades). If I could have ordered that interior (which looks superb), I would have probably ordered another one, too!
  6. Another 159 miles done yesterday. Opinion holds firm...but still many, many miles to do before I'll be able to comment properly. Oh dear - I seem to be following the American advice of, "Do yourself a favor (sic) and order your GT4 in red or yellow." After trying for PTS, my colour choice was between red or yellow; always thought I would have chosen yellow but red / gold just swayed me.
  7. 166 miles done yesterday; I have the suspicions that this might be quite a good car. Comfy for moderate periods in the seat (as far as tested thus far) and quite interesting when things get twisty. The 4,000 rev limit for run-in is, however, torture. Still, the car only has 215 miles on it so it's probably better to be kind! I'm also quite pleased (and very surprised) that I haven't really grounded the nose out on anything as yet (aside from my sister's driveway where both ends scraped a little); quite surprised by this but the clearance is such that I think the splitter is probably st
  8. I have been running Waze thus far to remind me where the speed cameras are! I think I have just linked the car to the app in settings (my garage is built out of concrete and blocks and is below my house...which is a phone dead zone, before you go underground) so checking this a job for future me. Handover has been a "challenging," process (won't dwell on here) so there has been a steeper learning curve than, perhaps, it could have been
  9. p12 - thank you! Have had a bust couple of days of work this week, thus far Compared to an IB it is a large automobile...and the standard NAV appears to be (broadly) indecipherable so, until I work it out, I may be asking myself where does that highway lead to (unless I use CarPlay).
  10. I had better do some miles then - do you know where the running in info is as I haven't been able to find it (but my reading of the handbook has been after days of staring at screens and documents)
  11. What's the running in procedure for these? I can't find any detail of it in the handbook (from my quick skim). I had read about cylinder deactivation - I think it turns off with the start-stop (or at least it seemed to yesterday as I trickled home in traffic).
  12. I agree with you re: the rear 3/4....but I can accept that as the price of something that looks different. I have only seen a couple on the road (unsurprisingly on the southern gulf coast of Florida) and really liked them. Not enough to buy one...yet...but never say never! Another car, at the other end of Toyota's range which I find myself drawn towards is this: I have no need, space or remaining funds to buy, store or use one...but I think it looks like a terrific package.
  13. There's something about those, isn't there...? My curiosity is piqued by the 5.0 as it's got a stonking n/a V8 in a car which looks unusual (but I like) and I suspect is engineered rather well.
  14. “Am I right? Am I wrong?” And you may say yourself "My God! What have I done?” …as I seem to have been doing over recent days… It’s at least several years since I have done anything stupid and so I thought it was possibly time to restore equilibrium and do something really stupid…so I went shopping. I put my name down for a GT4 of the current generation at the end of 2015 and, after staying in touch with the dealer for a number of years (and spending no money other than a few parts), I got a call, mid-pandemic, to say I had an allocation. When playing with the configurator,
