Who knows how McLaren would deal with that if you are in Hawaii where there are no local dealers. As I said above one of the things that set me off is the fact that you are locked into getting an extended warranty or likely you will be afraid to drive the car or even own the car imo.

570 is a great car and is actually easier to negotiate dips than TT. Do some research before buying from a dealer. All the “I’m a sponsor here” BS just costs you money and heartache.

Did some quick research and i didn't realize used 570S' are selling for ~$150k. I am kicking myself in the *** now... LOL

Owners would have to ship to Los Angeles to to major servicing. I know of a few Mac and Aston owners who do this.

The closest track to me would be Mont tremblant, I will definitely take it out for a one time affair like I have with my other cars but it won’t be on a regular basis

I sold my tuned 997.2TTS with a Europipe exhaust, and some TechArt pieces a while ago. I've been itching to get a fun car and and I've been intrigued by McLaren. I stopped by the McLaren Charlotte last month and drove the 570S. I really liked it, but at 6'4" 235lbs. it was a little snug. The salesman said I should try the 720S to compare. That was a HUGE mistake. Currently looking for a resale 720S as more are on the market with the first of the 720S Spyders coming in April.

I really like the 720s, but would have to wait a while more before I could consider one. That said I would still have to pay for the extended warranty and I am not sure I can come to grips with that.
