Hi ,
Just surfing around the net and phew this forum is well hidden - but I found it !!!
Took delivery on August 1 this year of a slightly used GT (post 6k service from the main stealer) I have already done 2 k + miles - I am using it as a daily driver :cool: - I had one issue with gear selection - it was a cable adjustment apparently - dealer fixed it no sweat - its a '05 in rosso with black interior - I love the uniqueness of it - (traded in a E320 and a 993 to get the price sensible and my garage clear) Just a little worried about clutches seems to be a common thread - I will just go with the flow here - my clutch seems fine - I only go hooligan once a week or so !!! - only comment here is its a little more twitchy than the porker was but what a smile it leaves me with especially with the traction control turned off :D

Gear selection

Hi Colossus,

OK the gear selection thing - this happened while I was thrashing the car - 1st to 2nd became impossible at any speed except stopped - 3rd down to second was sticky but with a throttle blip I could get the gear in - changing from 2nd to 3rd a non issue . I drove the car for about 150 miles without using 1st - I phoned the dealer (in NW UK) who suggested I get the car recovered using Masareti Assist ( a freebee if you are still covered under guarantee) no sweat they were great came and picked up the car - the workshop report says - readjust cable and linkage tested OK - charge £0.00. So your guess is a good as mine.

The vibrations - when I test drove the car there was a small shimmy on the steering wheel which got worse as your speed increased - wtf - I insited that this was not normal and it was fixed in the pre-delivery - which included 4 new tyres and resetting the steering geometry (report says fitting some shims ?) - tyres are Goodyear Eagles 265/35Z rear and 235/40Z front - this made the car much more stable and have not noticed any vibration since, just a small rattle out of the lhs door - screws loose on speaker and sorted at the same time as the gears .

Hope that helps

Hey Carl ,

Do what I did - I use the car as a daily - and I made a fuss - I was given a loaner - and heap of junk - caddilac (a new one) great for getting respect in bad areas but like a cow with a broken leg going round a corner - had it for a week and a half while they dicked around - at least I didn't feel guilty wheelspinning it until I got it to smoke hehehehe.

Good luck (best to make noise in person in the showroom)
