I'd be happy if mine was at the dealer!
Why?
then he stands alone outside in the cold in the rain and snow, sometimes in the dark.
and that for weeks/months!?

I wish that mine only comes when I can bring him home the next day, in a cozy garage, where we can cuddle up at night and study the holy book together in the glow of the interior lighting!

I was wondering how you knew it had panels instead of windows

I see it has white lettering out on the tyres. My dealer actually asked me which way round I wanted them last week, which I was impressed with.
Ineos said to me you get white chav lettering like it or not.
P,S, Why can't any dealer register them???????????????????????????????????????????/

My dealer said, they seem to be random, with which way round they had been mounted. In fact it was that random the four main tyres were white out and the spare was the other way round. Now that’s attention to detail 😝

Why can’t a dealer register what ?

You know that Porsche (for sure in the past, I don't know at the present) mounted the Porsche shield in the pneumatic rims with the tip oriented towards the valve... That was attention to detail... But, I don't think that is the right spirit of a Grenadier...

Quite a few year back, against my wishes, tyre fitters fitted my BF Goodrich white letters out. My true chav colours came through and I ended up leaving them that way. 🤷‍♂️

That would be because the spare is reverse mounted to allow for storage. 🙂

Pretty standard best practice with bicycle tyres is to make sure the lettering is closest to the valve when fitting.
