Having been thinking about it very hard for at least the last three years, I'm finally taking the plunge and should be taking delivery of a silver 2013 GT86 in the next week or two Smile

It's a first 'proper' car for me, despite having been driving for about 19 years, so will be learning as I go - I'm based in Bristol so expect to be out and about in the Welsh hills and Mendips quite a bit, and am very much looking forwards to the experience!

To existing owners - is there anything you feel you missed during the buying process that you wish you'd checked, or asked the dealer about?

Any Bristol owners out there - is there a preferred spot for servicing etc in the area, that treats your car well?

All the best, Mike Wink

Geek A warm welcome to the Forum Mike!

I come to Bristol now and then, either up the dreaded A37 or over the mendips to Burrington and in on the A 38.  The B roads between Shepton Mallet and the bottom of Burrington are good for a blast.
They don't make 'em like they used to! Thank goodness

Thanks folks! It will probably be a coin toss as to whether I head to the Mendips or Brecons as soon as it turns up 😀

Geek Just thought - watch it in Burrington as there are a lot of goats on the gorge sides and they sometimes come down to look at the traffic!

Hopefully getting the car on Friday morning - have actually seen a few out and about around Bath and the Brecons recently, think I'm now hyper alert for GT86 spotting 😀

Man, that's so ironic (and annoying)! I drive down to bloody Bristol every day as i can't find any decent jobs to get away from the place and you come up here! Sure no worries, if its a Friday, other wise i will be in Bristol!

Whereabouts do you work that sees you in longlevens? I went to school there!
