    I know a few of us have ordered or are looking at ordering the 2 GC.
    This thread is to monitor delivery times and specs.

    Please comment if you have ordered one, with which spec and your lead times.

    Lord muc do you know what the top speed is on the motability model

    Atiq, the quoted top speed is 133, I believe it can easily do that, in its stride. A friend told me, his was coasting at near 100.  😉

    Lord Muc that is quite good, probaby will do even more if you got the stage 1 remap which get you an extra 30 or so bhp

    I don’t think you’re allowed to remap a motability car. Correct me if I’m wrong?

    Probably not but they would never know

    Atiq, true, but you may run into an insurance issue, if there is a claim. It is not your car, just be wary, of any performance enhancements or mods.

    Atiq a Motability vehicle is not a vehicle I would remap and to be honest I feel it is wrong to do so considering it’s use is not for racing but being mobile and enjoying without the need for breaking speed limits and puting both yourself and others at risk.

    Congrats to your daughter @ajn. She’s going to love it.

    I agree with you Footloose, Motability cars shouldn’t be used to drive like a maniac, we’re very lucky to have the scheme to keep us mobile and even luckier if we can afford the APs on BMWs etc.

    @Atiq, just be careful as they can tell when you get it serviced. The only way if you want to take a risk is to fit a tuning box but if you get caught with it be prepared to be thrown off the scheme or if you have an accident and it gets discovered just remember you won’t be covered by insurance.

    I believe even modded exhaust are against motability rules. I believe the class a dash cam as a mod and Audi told me a few year back you have to ask motability if you want a dash cam fitted
