my first post!

I got my McLaren 650S around June 2014, since then I basically drive this amazing machine almost every dayÖ
In the past nine months Iíve put on 10,000km on my car, Iíve taken to car meets and shows and of course short road trips with friends.
Taking the car to a track was a lot of fun, getting to know it more just makes the car even better. As an amateur I can feel I was only using 5% of what the car can do.

Iíve read some of otherís threads saying their car has many problems occur during, but mine was completely fine. It had no problem at all during the nine month period as I was daily-ing it.
I was also away for three months, and during this period I didnít not charge the car at all (startup about once a week). When I came back the car had a full battery.

I took it to service at about 9500km, all they did was an oil change and did a small check on the car (I didnít do the pre-track day and post track day service).
When I was about to reach 10,000km my check engine light came on, thatís when the mechanic started finding minor problems such as the oil pressure sensor wasnít working properly and etc.
There is also a small oil leak, but according to their data the car is completely fine to drive, I need to bring it back to the dealership for them to work on it after getting the car wrapped :)

Awesome write-up, i like to see that you are enjoying your car! Frankly the modern sportcars can be used without problems as DD. Of course if you have family, kids etc it's a different story. It's funny how on exactly 10k km your engine warning turned on lol

Hi, nice color! I have a request for you. Can you please describe how the headlight washer works? And, if it is possible, can you attach a video? I'm so curious about! Thanks in advance, I'm very jealous of your 650S ; )
