Welcome to the club, they are great little cars, well maybe not so little :D
Welcome from me too.

They're WIDE. Very WIDE. Just tell my 3 wheels that I've curbed recently! :shock:
I think most of us have suffered from this in the first year.
Afraid so,I did my nearside ones within a few weeks, learnt my lesson.

Thanks guys.

Hopefully get some pictures soon, waiting on a collection date at the moment.

I’m coming from an XKR so hopefully a little smaller and hopefully less risk on the wheels, but thanks for the heads up 👍

I came from an XKR, and while the F-type is about a foot shorter it is actually a liitle wider than the x150 XKR, so watch those wheels!
But you will get better mpg, which surprised me as I expected the 550PS engine to be less frugal than the 510PS XKR lump. So, I downsized to a smaller, more economical car! :D

Collected today. In love with the colour... the car is incredible and that exhaust in the m25 tunnels is something else!
