Hello from Lincoln

Just thought i'd introduce myself.
Name:- John Goldthorpe
Home :- Lincoln

Just about to order our new baby Type R in Milano RED.
Thaught about getting extras like Factory fitted Sat NAV, but thaught i'd ask expert's like you good hearted owners first for your opinion.

Can't wait to get it as my son and I are race Marshal's along Wiffie at Cadwell Park loads of free track time throughout the year.

As soon as it's on my garage i'll let you know and show some pic's.

My wife and I had our first test drive on Sat WOW. Wife refused to get out of car and wanted to take it home there and then.

I must say it sticks to the road like nothing i've ever driven
Cheers jaygee58

Welcome! Just over the bridge so not too far away.

I would advise getting a Tom Tom rather than the factory fit sat nav. I have it as std in my EX but wouldn't pay for it as an option. It's OK but having used Tom Tom's in the past - I rate them.

Enjoy your car when you get it!
