No rear wheel steering on the M5C
O there is in your hands...

It's not connected to the steering wheel, but is to the throttle

Was Pete not available to offer a 'get the mileage up' service?

Lol, I need a good ride out to see my Mum, she lives in North Wales, when the borders open up, I might take a spin over 😁

What’s the +/- tolerance for that first service? I seem to remember it being something like 100 miles on the M3.

Not sure, there is a time limit of 9 months from registration, but as the dealership is close by, I will get it booked in around the 1200 marker

It might be worth checking to see if 1200 miles is the upper limit?

With the M3 you had to sign a form to say that you understood that the warranty would be void if you exceeded something like 1250 miles

Apparently, up to 200 miles over is acceptable.................

You need to get the running in service done before you head over to North Wales! :D Those roads are superb! Where in North Wales does she live? We've got family 5 minutes from Pentrefoelas so I always make a B line for the Denbigh Moors road (A543) which is a great today to have a bit of fun with some power. Unfortunately, they're really hot on speeding over there just now :(

My parents live in Rhos on Sea, I lived in Llandudno for 25 years, those roads in Snowdonia are superb, my old biking routes 🥰

My Aunt and Uncle live on the road by the grey location marker below. I've got cousins in Llangernyw, Nebo and Llanfair Caereinion so getting down there is fabulous in a decent car. I'm still waiting to get the XFR down there thanks to Covid and ill family members... I can't wait until the country opens up again!

Great roads, for a bike, or the TVR with the roof down in decent weather, or the M5 when it’s changeable weather 😁

Down to Betws Y Coed, then Capel Curig, through Beddgelert into Porthmadog, down past Harlech, then hook a left up through Bala........what a road 😁

Used to drive that route myself in a Supra Turbo, many years ago. Fond memories of that car, it was a very good Grand Tourer, a Japanese XJS. I remember having it on cruise control at, ahem, maximum velocity. Allegedly.

You could do that in Buttercup without breaking the law!😀
