Talking Soon to be a FK8 owner

So I test drove the new FK8 a few weeks back

I was really impressed with the ride comfort, the looks, and the new media system.

So much so I traded in my FK2 and I take deliver late Sept/early Oct.

I went there to order in the normal Red I go for but I've gone for a GT in Polished Metal.

Pics uploaded of the one I test drove.

Many others parted with cash for the FK8? I notice only one thread on this section about it?

This will be my 4th Type R I refuse to grow up lol.

Hoping as it's also hitting the US market that we will see a fair few options for mods.

I've got a test drive booked tomorrow, hopefully I will be aloud to take it on some b roads to get a feel for it. They have got the seating and pedal positioning spot on so I'm looking forward to it, it felt like a driver's car as soon as I parked my arse in it. 😁

Any update on delivery Ash?
FK8 ownership appears to be a very exclusive club at the moment.

Forgot to say, I noticed not many people have one yet. We can't be the only two active members on here getting one?

Will take some better ones of it outside at some point, when it's not raining......

Probably when I get it back from the detailer after it's had a full paint correction and ceramic coating etc

If it requires a full paint correction there is something seriously wrong.
Straight to the detailer from brand new though, always the best way.

Yes I knew what you were getting at. Its just that paint correction is not normally associated with a brand new car....it is through time where damage has been inflicted through washing, polishing, and effects of the environment that it can become necessary.
Your car will greatly benefit from a full detail though, mine did.

Fn2 to Fk8

Hello everyone and congratulations on your new cars. I’ve a Fk8 on order,I ordered it on the last weekend in September. I’m trading in my trusty Fn2 of 10 years which has been a great car and to be honest I still enjoy everyday. My dealer got in touch this Monday and told me he had the chassis number for my Fk8 anyone know how long between getting the chassis number and delivery? I was originally quoted 5/11/17.
