New member and owner!

Hello everyone, I'm a new member from the UK. I've managed to source a GRMN from a local dealer and I pick the car up on Sunday.

Excited is an understatement!

Welcome to the forum!
Feel free to post pictures of your GRMN, there isn't nearly enough coverage of these.

Thanks, I will post some pictures once I pick it up! I also agree with you on the point you made about not being enough coverage.

But I gave mine an airing at Oulton park yesterday and had a lot of fun.

My only frustration was that the grooved discs ate the front pads inside 80 miles ... but I can always fit harder pads.

First outing I was within a couple of seconds of the best time stated for a Clio 197 ... and the car felt wonderful.

I've just passed 2000 miles so I reckon it's just about run-in ...

How did you find the stock tires to be? Often I realize that's what car makers lack in for good reason unless its something crazy like a McLaren P1!
