First pic is great. I took out the rear of the other car.

Always a good sign. But problems when you come to move on - I still get comments about how I sold her bike ( the Pan Euro ST1100 she was comfortable on) and her boat ( a Prout cat that didnt heel)


Good point! I can never get her back on a boat after a trip to Cardiff a few years ago when the forecast F2 to 3 was F5 on the nose. She got a lift home.
Still, another great day in the Aero from Tralee to Tipperary via Limerick, torrential rain at times, but a bit of sun in the afternoon, and some long walks in the Glen of Aherlow.
Didn't get the roof down today, but the car is proving a great tourer.
I think the refusal to start with a flat battery on day one was because the sat nav lead was left plugged in overnight. Surprising something like that could drain so much power overnight. I've made sure everything is unplugged since, and no further problems (touch wood). oops

Glen of Aherlow to Rock of Cashel, then to Clonmel, Waterford and Wexford. Sun at times but again torrential rain showers whenever I was contemplating dropping the hood, so it stayed up all day. Last night in Ireland then ferry tomorrow and back home.
What a beautiful country, even in the rain, and we had expected to get some, so it didn't dampen our enjoyment. joy

Took my swmbo sisters best friend who is Ukranian and has lived here for over 25 years out for a spin in the Aero. She loves sports cars and has had large fast motorbikes. She loved the car and just kept saying how wonderful it was, she commented that she was sat in the passenger seat grinning from ear to ear. She was very surprised how quick it was, and how well it cornered and was very impressed by the braking. woohoo

Nice drive out with my daughter to "The Squadron" at North Weald for breakfast with son in law and Grandaughter following in a Stag.
Putting on the miles and loving it!

Any noticeable changes from the cream & burgundy demonstrator cars?

Well, I have discovered a terrible glitch that I will have to find a fix for! Only affects the cars with the infotainment system though and drivers that keep the roof down. Need to have a chat with the factory as I'm guessing Steve Morris may have the same issue with his and a fix already in the works.
