The C60 Apex sounds very intriguing, I look forward to seeing pictures of it.

Enjoy the pepsi!

I'm glad you had a great trip to the showroom. I hope you like the "Pepsi".
So the C60 Apex is stunning! I wish there were pictures. Still I'm on the shortlist and no doubt I'll see it soon enough.
I didn't know they had a reservations list for the C60 Apex. When did they start accepting submissions?

Names were being accepted at the GTG in Manchester, end of April.

Some stalwarts probably had their names down before then.

I know that one person put their name down when in an Edinburgh pub. 🤭😱

My mate who just came to keep me company, with no intention of buying anything, put his name down on the spot. I think he'd held it for less than 30 seconds before he asked Mike if he could reserve one!

They are going to make 100, so i’m sure there are plenty left. It’s even been officially shown yet.

There is definitely still time. Official launch is September but if the last one is any indication they won't hang around for long.

You can always buy from a speculator later (seems there's always one or two get in there - dreamplates springs to mind) though what you'll pay is indeterminate for now :lol:

About the Apex - does it have a date wheel and what colour is it? I’m hoping that the answers are ‘yes’ and ‘blue’. 🤞

I’m scared to say too much in case CW send the boys around! But I think you will be happy.

C8 Apex - Waiting list - I jumped on the bandwagon in early May. Scott acknowledged that their was already a waiting list but that the serial number I wanted (15) was still available. Now I'm just waiting for some teaser images. Why SN 15, well my C7 Apex is Nr. 15 and so it seemed appropriate that the C60 Apex should also be Nr. 15. As there are 100 in this special edition I'd expect some to hang around for a while and their might even be a NN as there was with the C7 Apex.

What?!?! Not only there is a C60 Apex reservations list, there is also one for the C8 Apex?

I know it is late spring but I've never been asleep this long before.

Thanks for the suggestion but I would never do that. I have encountered those opportunities before but with other products.
