I didn't get an invite so as I was in Tonbridge OPC yesterday I asked if I could come along.

I was put on a reserve list as apparently the take up from 'depositors' and those that had already expressed a serious interest in purchasing a Macan had exceeded all expectations.

Talks of an 18 months waiting list. Can that be right Question

Yup - certainly for the diesel. I'm going to wait for the plug-in hybrid with the VW/Audi tech.

Interesting. We put a deposit down only 2 weeks ago and were told 12months. It's a shame the launch colours aren't that good, though apparently a metallic red will be available from October.

Anyhow, it seems I was right then to push for an official invite!

I don't really know. Who knows. Excluding the illuminati on this forum, perhaps full of chinless wonders jingling the gold chunky ID bracelets, Timex watches and plastic shoes as the dress code is a little vague Rolling Eyes But I have told Mrs Z not to prepare supper Thumb

I think my 964 will be the only one in the car park Grin

Good luck parking between all the RRS's, and for heaven's sake don't wear anything white as all that fake tan is a bu66er to wash out PC

Hatfield do good food served by great totty* with lashings of free champagne. Get someone to drive you.


(*I'm led to believe that this is an inappropriate, sexist and potentially derogatory term for attractive young women, so I apologies for using it).

Looking forward to it actually in a bizarre way.
