    The McLaren 765LT Spider & The Use Case Rule

    Just posted a new blog on the decision process that led us to ordering a McLaren 765LT Spider & how the Use Case Rule shaped the decision:

    Re: The McLaren 765LT Spider & The Use Case Rule

    Congratulations on the decision.  Whilst always being more of a coupé than convertible fan, the advantages of the McLaren and Ferrari spider designs reverses that decision.  


    Re: The McLaren 765LT Spider & The Use Case Rule

    Your use case analysis always makes a lot of sense. Covid put paid to my use of the Senna and along with catastrophic depreciation mean that it will be sold today.


    Re: The McLaren 765LT Spider & The Use Case Rule

    Nice bold color. 
    enjoy 


    Re: The McLaren 765LT Spider & The Use Case Rule

    Nice looking spec, fits the car very well. Also enjoyed the Use Case analysis, your approach to car ownership is a great balance of emotion and pragmatism, which adds to the enjoyment of following along.

    Being married, and as I would like to stay married, I've found the pragmatism and logic helps immensely.

    Been through that and yes.


    Re: The McLaren 765LT Spider & The Use Case Rule

    Congrats! Did you consided future values and was there an option to buy a used 765LT vs ordering new at list price?

    All McLarens that you own are always under warranty and what is your plan for the 765LT regarding warranty?

    Just don't confuse male pragmatism and logic with female pragmatism and logic... they're two different things entirely and failing to recognize that is still a recipe for an expensive situation... Smiley

    Both the 650S Spider and 675LT Spider are now out of warranty. No plans on buying the extended one for any of the cars.


    Re: The McLaren 765LT Spider & The Use Case Rule

    Is that a bit risky?


    Re: The McLaren 765LT Spider & The Use Case Rule

    I've had more issues with Porsches than I have with McLarens

    Your a McLaren devotee. Can you explain the horrific depreciation of their cars?Smiley

    Nice logic. Slight typo toward the end. Would not point it out in a post but you publish these.  …do it now, thAn in a year. (Rather than …do it now, then in a year).  Btw German is my first language so I don’t know to write nearly as well as you do. 
    how you stay married after the second maca is a miracle.  I only get one fun car at a time.

    Yes they depreciate more than Ferrari in general.  However look at Aston Martin, Porsche, Bentley etc and there is little to no difference.
