I haven't felt this way since I waited for Christmas sixty years ago.

Normally, I'm rather stoic when it comes to waiting. But this time it's different. And I think it's because of the uncertainty of when 'it will happen"

If I knew, "The contract is coming on February 1st," that wouldn't be a problem. Waiting a year wouldn't be nice, but I would just wait. But now I find myself checking my Ineos account every day and checking my spam folder more often than usual.

I enter my workshop and play with the tools I have for woodworking - like I'm going to start building interior parts this afternoon.

It's a strange experience.


What's it like for you?

In Germany, we imagine the British as polite and patient in the queue at the bus stop.

Are we wrong? 😯

I feel like the calm before the storm right now just waiting for the first demonstrator to turn up, It will resemble the film Zulu with me at one end of the racecourse whilst hundreds run down the track to me :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
"The sentries report wouldbe customers and tyrekickers to the southwest. Thousands of them."

I find it difficult not to log in and check build status once a day - however busy I am. Also looking at 33inch tyres frequently often as well!

I check our Portal on a similar basis to see if anymore orders have dropped in.

I'm in the same situation, checking my Ineos account every day,... They are very good with marketing

Ok Steve, how many orders do you guys have lined up already.
We spoke of the numbers that a few Australian agents had the other week, but I reckon you would have a few more.

I log in once a day in hope, but nothing yet.

However I did contact my insurer this morning to see if they have the Grenadier listed as an insurable vehicle and it still has not been listed on the national insurers database?

Is Jim going to set up an insurance company as part of the project? Am I going to get £65 K of Trialmaster for Christmas that I cannot use on the road due to lack of car insurance. Quite worrying really and something Grenadier seems to be overlooking. It will look nice on my driveway though!

Go to a football match and you will be disappointed!

I am in a different place because I don't want mine until May June next year.
I am still planning and can't wait but know I must.

I checked here in Australia and it was listed no problems.

Is that all? You are falling way behind the OZ dealers mate. Perhaps you better get out of the pub, get off your backside, and get to work.
I like the pub though @Davman I have resisted going The White Horse thus far though, although I am on a stag do tonight which should be interesting. Joking aside though I can't publish numbers like that on a public forum sorry.
