    Default New Owner 612

    Hi All,


    Finally managed to purchase a OTO 612 Grigio Silverstone last week, having its annual service at Meridian before I pick it up next week. Iím based in Somerset so hopefully see some of you out on the roads soon.

    Clutch wear is 54% so will need changing soon, whatís the standard go to place for parts and does being a member on here get you any discount with any parts suppliers?

    Also can anyone recommend good floor mat supplier please?



    Thanks

    Clutch at 54 % should still have many tens of thousands of miles in it

    If you need the clutch parts that presumably means you plan to DIY - don't forget the initial parameters need setting up by computer which could complicate your plan

    For localish servicing Carrs very recommended - easy to deal with & well priced

    Mark at morethanpolish should be able to help with mats else it might be a trip to a US supplier for a broader range

    Thanks for the direction regarding mats.

    Also havenít the foggiest on how to change clutch I just didnít know if there was a forum member discount on parts so you can supply your own to a Indy garage.
    Will be going to see Ashley at SI soon for a once over.

    I have silver alloys would like to change the to the ball polished which may look better on black 612ís but thinking of giving them a try on mine.

    Congrats on the new motor. Nice colour for a 612 I think.

    I've always thought the 612 is a bit under-rated due, as far as I can tell, to having 4 seats not 2. I'll be honest, if I had a front engined V12 it'd be so it can have 4 seats.

    Always look good on challenge rims these.

    How many miles is it on for 50% clutch wear?

    Clutch wear is a bit high for that mileage but you never know how it has been used.

    Make sure they do a clutch / gearbox re-learn as part of the recommissioning so that you minimise wear going forward.

    Good luck

    Last 2 owners lived in central London and although the previous owner only did 400 miles, the owner prior to him did a fair few miles but possibly all stop start driving.

    Hopefully after a few weeks of driving all the niggles will come to the surface followed by a visit to SI to address them along with clutch if itís deteriorated much more.
