New F-types on transporter in Glasgow

Post by dezzy » Mon Feb 12, 2018 6:31 pm

Saw this on the M77 tonight, I assume heading for Taggarts compound near Darnley. Anyone on here ordered either of these? Silver one had an R Dynamic badge. The black one had a fixed spoiler and the new model numbering with "P380" on the back. Not seen that yet.

Love the wheels on the black one! 8-)

P. S. I was driving, wife took the photos. So I wasn't breaking the law! :D

Nice, but i do hate the new badging.

P for Petrol and 380 for HP - too clinical.

Yeah, I agree. Really didn't look right with the "P380" badge on the back. I know it sounds really silly because it's just a badge, but it kinda took away from the class of the car I think.

seems to be no center wheel caps on the black one, are they not on during transport. If its an R dynamic model , i think the side vents say R dynamic too.

stunning kaspa, surprised they don't come with a protective transport cover, if that was a wet transport day, your car or anyone car would be all road debris, especially at the front of the lorry trailer as yours was, not great for the paintwork.

Doesn't really matter how they are transported as when they arrive at the dealers, their detailers will get to work introducing more scratches & swirls to the paintwork. :o
Do not let the dealership prepare your car. I always tell them to leave the car as it comes off the transporter, don't even take off any protective wrapping & I organize my detailer to pick up the car & detail it. I find Gtechniq products work for me outside, inside leather, wheels & glass usually takes about 3 days but well worth it :D
Some people don't care how they receive their car, probably the one's who use car washes as they will give even more scratches. I am not knocking them, each to their own :shock:

I'm waiting on mine beginning of March but it's in a deep grey. The wheels are the same as the black one though. Supposed to be coming in Taggarts in Glasgow compound imminently. Thanks for the advice all regarding the swirls etc. I'm getting the dealership to deliver to a detailer before I pick up. Asked dealership to do NO prep

It was dark so may have been grey rather than black. Might be yours after all.

I'm the same. Didn't let the dealer touch the car.
