Yes dude!! ..GoPro with a suction cup on a delayed time shot; gets awesome results at night!

Apart from the great car, your photo's are very good, are you a professional or a keen amateur photographer?
Thanks! Just enjoy trying to find some cool shots - they're all taken on a GoPro Hero 3 - Even got some cool footage of the exhaust popping .. i'll try post it.. :D

Had it since the 1st of Feb! ..I've just clocked up 3000 miles, averaging 35mpg.. i did get 56mpg on a long journey, the 'Fish' was really happy.

Liking the thunder grey under a moody sky :)
Thanks dude, i'll try take some more and manufacture some lightning in there ;)

I think official running in is 1200 miles as then you can use the launch control and the engine should be loosened
Launch control

is that Autos only ?

shes just getting to 1200 miles now, went to see my pops this morning so did give it a few more beans ;) see feels like shes opening up a bit more every day now

Haha that good to hear! Mine at 1225 miles now so anything goes from now on :)

Yeah I think launch control is auto only, not tried it yet but I won't lie I'm excited to do so as the autobox is brutal without it.

I know.. I know.. I've had to make a few unexpected trips; either way, it's a great place to spend all that time!!

Amazing pics and Car, what camera did you use for this man? The images looks so perfect that I can just use them as wallpapers :)
Ha! Thanks dude, I used a GoPro for the stills, actually - the shot of the rear is taken on my phone..

..I'll get the proper camera out on it soon; should have at the weekend - I spent 5 hours cleaning it!!
