    Decided after a lot of thought that i cant justify the cost of the supra esp as ive just been offered an Aston Martin Vantage S for less £ - though yes a 2nd hand car!

    Also the process has been shocking and ive no idea when the car will arrive.

    So going to call Toyota and cancel my spot, but wondered if anyone wanted a white pro car that i could say just change name over?

    Will drop Toyota a line at some point today.

    I have a white pro on order... if it’s coming through earlier than mine I’d swap if it was possible. I’ve been told late October

    Liked the car, but £5k down and £700 a month - really isn't worth that.

    It's a V8 Vantage S

    Fully loaded with all sorts of toys, 430bhp I believe.

    It's not lightning quick, but the noise is insane.

    Lots of carbon everywhere too.IMG_20190903_175759.jpg

    Impressive, although if that's the handbrake to the right of the drivers seat is going to take some getting used too when doing handbrake turns:)
