After what seems like eternity she is actual on english soil.



Not been overly impressed by the dealership keeping us upto date on the goings on but after looking at the paperwork on saturday the dates for build have been bouncing around like a pinball. He gave me the impression that they have been as frustrated with the whole process aswell and said that they are experiencing it on most 208 orders of late. Now pushing 11 weeks from order, those damn extras.



On the back of the dealers most up to date information we went and sold our car on saturday and got £900 more than the trade in price ... which was nice ... the only down side is the wife moaning about being without a car for a week.



The only saving grace if the car doesn't turn up on saturday is that we have a promise from the dealership of a loaner until it arrives due to all the messing about ... let's see if they are true to their word, although we have an inside lady who is more than happy to apply pressure wherever needed.



Fingers crossed for a happy Saturday pick up.

Sorry for the delayed response.



Picked her up on Saturday and she's a beaut.



Although it's my wife's car I think I was more excited than her.



The down side ... it's my wife's car and I've only been allowed to drive it once thus far




Will be washing her on Sunday and will be taking some snaps for the record and will try to get them up on the siteas soon as possible after that.



Early signs are very good ... but I appreciate it's early days.



The only moan my wife has had is that she has taken to driving in leather gloves as the aluminium gear knob is very very cold, nice to look at but cold to use ... how many more months until it get warm? .... oh yeah forgot we live in England it could be sometime!!!
