    I am open to drive any of these cars which need it. PM me anytime of day. 


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Are you also open to pay for any kind of damage which might occur? Smiley Smiley

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    wantone:

    How often you need to drive it (and for how long, for example once or twice a week for 50km)  to prevent this problem?

    On a similar topic, how often you do an oil change in the 918?

     

     

    Oil change for the 918 is once a year or every 20k km.

    There really isn't a guide as to how often cars should be driven. Common sense, if a car just sit around in the garage for months at a time then it's no good.

    I do try to drive all of them at least once a week, 2 weeks max between. 

    Just because of the number of cars around, their individual mileage seems low, the 918 at 2600km now, the RS at 2200km, my F12 is at 2800km and the FF is slightly over 6000km. Those 4 cars are just 1 year old or less. The G63 has the most, but it's been 2 1/2 years now, it is at 18000km.

    A great lineup for sure. I wonder why the owner(s) won't take delivery - the cars are standing in the showroom since mid november.

    By the way, have you noticed the colour difference between the 918 and the other two. The 918 looks less white but more sparkling IMO.

    The Boxster Spyder and the RS will stay over the winter at the OPC - the customers don´t want them in the winter.

    The 918 ist the OPC Owners car...

    And yes, 3 different whites in one row.

    Pearl Oryx White doesn't really look good on a 918 in my opinion.

    I don't think it does either. The best looking 918 I have seen in person was a dark blue one (at the same opc) closely followed by liquid metal silver.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Best shade of white I have seen on a hypercar is a Satin White on a LaFerrari as per youtube video:

    I cannot really figure out if this satin white is a bit shiny or more matte. Smiley

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    It is a matte finish, not glossy (shiny).  If you see the yellow Laferrari they also show, it is glossy or shiny finish as it reflects the hotel lights much more noticeably.  But the Satin effect does show diffused light reflections, that is what makes it the best shade of white in my books.

    Matte white? Nice. Smiley

    Never thought that the car would have a chance. Amazing - the car beat the golf ball by a tenth of a second!


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    bought this for a mere £90 from an OPC yesterday. Front opens but not back. Doors open.

    quite well made
