Play nice in your new arena

I think it's been tough on Mac owners - for whatever reason it hasn't gotten the love IMO it deserves.

I have been very nice regarding the big depreciation hit they are taking. Always give congrats to new owners, but a couple of guys over there are straight A-Holes period.



Think I will just discuss the car over here, hopefully you and Boxer will join the club soon. Thanks for the call today, that was pretty cool.

The guys I disliked most at the beginning over at f-chat are now good friends.

It has been a rough slog for many of them. Just need some TLC and they will come around.

They have the latest and greatest tech around inside their Mac.

I have been told only 55 non Spiders are slated for the US this year.

With the upgrade and white glove service Mclaren is trying everything possible to satisfy their owners and dealerships.

Mark is this the thread your referring to?

http://www.mclarenlife.com/forums/mc...ny-people.html

Quite a few contradict themselves in that thread but won't go into it here.

I generally laughed at this.

I made the exact same comment in one of the threads.
Still, I think you are probably good at giving it as well.

So come on, spill the 12C beans.

That's good. I just thought they started off on the defensive side, even before the car was out. Such a shame. IMHO the 458 owners don't bear them any bad will, it seems the other way around is not so friendly.

Nonetheless I am very happy to chat to them and wish them all the best with their, undoubtedly, phenomenal car. Last year I was offered to spank one (well drive one, probably) around the Spa circuit. I was GUTTED I could not make it, would have loved to experience the car. I might think Ron Dennis has got the charisma of an embalmed icicle, but we can't take that out on the car.

As soon as calipers are done I will request good photos from Dealer, and disclose details.

You now have or have had one of every rear engine exotics from 500 - 670 hp.

Can't wait to hear which is your favorite and why.
