Question What Sort of Show Is This?

FPV have made some blunders in the short time they've been going. Like sending cars out with bits missing and so on. We've put it down to learning the ropes of a new model and perhaps expansion or growing pains.

But really, here we are in mid July a full three and a half months after the first FPV Pursuits were delivered and still FPV has no towbars for the vehicles. I know there's issues behind all this, but you have to wonder...

Maybe they're designing it so it fits around the 'Superlow-Fully-Sick-Drop-Twin-Exhaust-Pipes'? Maybe it will be similarly designed to hang well under the rear skirt so it looks utterly poor fitting to the carry over Tickford rear skirt on the Pursuit (which is tactfully also moulded with the Tickford logo in place - Who said Tickford was dead??? )

I wonder if I should charge interest on the money they've been happy to take for four months (towbars are now reportedly due first week in August although I'll believe it when I see the rotten thing )

Sorry for the negativity, but AP is only human and the nerves are almost totally shot. AP's going

Funniest thing I've heard in ages - must take a close look next time I see one.

You've got more patience than me anyway.

Cheers

AP applies for the re-registration of the 'Tickford Owners' Club' - affiliated with the LSUG Corporation!

Believe it for it is indeed happening. I will go for your exhaust but the fact is that a customer shouldn't have to modify their car to put it right.
