That doesn't look to bad actually.

I went through all the ones on the used website to get a feel for colours

There are two whites. One of them is the same as the GTR, unfortunately that is where the similarity ended!!

yes the pearl white! ( its extra for pearl )

That no doubt is the polar opposite of the leaf!! similarities end with badge!!

Ive just done a hellish nightshift, 50mph winds! hail, sleet, berthing a gas ship full of cargo @ -160'c.  Stood on Jetty since 1am! not pleasant.  Bed is now bliss!!! Setting alarm to pay Jacky his pennies [emoji2].

Grey is indeed the way to go and the way I've gone, sorry man pink men, I feel I've deserted the cause.  :-[

I plan to use Rapid Chargers for the trip across Scotland and allowing an hour each time. If I get away early enough on my last day I intend to get as far a Stirling and b&b overnight. This will then mean only one charge stop at Dundee on route, a fully charged car leaving Stirling will require a charge around Peswick or Ayr and that will be enough to get me home as I live 10 miles from the port in NI.

Now all I need to do is sort out a set of winter wheels.

Do yo think the winter where will be so critical?

Presumably these are really narrow etc?

I was thinking about snow and assumed it would be ok but then I wasn't sure what the power delivery was like because I havent driven one!!

Is it a bit like a switch or can it be treated like a throttle?

I would like winter tyres because the roads around where I live don't get either gritted or ploughed and have had snow/ice covered roads for as much as six weeks one winter.

The power delivery is as normal and smooth as a standard car although with all the torque being instantly available I wonder if that could cause an issue?
