Picked it up yesterday and couldn't be more pleased with it.


It's brilliant and well worth the wait.


Hope everyone's as pleased with theirs and a quick cheers to my fellow Week 21-ers!

Thanks guys.

Yes Leif (pics 1,4&5. Pic 2's at the end of the Hope valley and pic 3 is at Strines/Dale Dyke reservoir).

Had a run out last night after work through Bamford, Hope, Castleton and then back via Hathersage.

Like many of us I changed my mind during the wait and would've preferred the wheels from the sports pack like gary02tdi's but I'm happy enough with the ones I have and for the tyre people it's on Continentals.

One thing to bear in mind is that the Sport wheels are 16" and the tyres are the best part of 50% more expensive - so the 15" Spoke wheels will seem so much better when it needs new rubber!

Great looking car....you have to admit Gilders valeters put a top shine on the cars! Did you get the 'Bond' style through the floor entry!?

Whoot!
Very nice, Manacee

They do look good in black, specially when clean. It's my second-favourite colour, a close second to white

Yes pugliablue I did. They reckoned it was the best lighting to check over the car in.The lift'sa bit wobbly though (especially for a big lad!).



I know I had a 'bit' of a moan at them but overall they have been good and the car is fantastic. Everyone should have one!

The soundpack lifts the stereo and I'm glad I added it but I found myself turning it off to listen to the thrum yesterday. It sounds great when you rev it!


As the irish reviewer might say, 'I am trilled wid it'!!




I know a lot of people went for the white and I think it looks cool especially with the chrome bits on the up! white but not sure I'm as cool as the car so I went for black. I think it looks quite classy.

Don't care. Triangle alloys look good. Tire cost was a cost I was prepared to eat willingly to have those puppies on The Red Mist.

Not sure I would've given the tyre cost a second thought.

I think the spoke ones I have look better than I thought they would but I still think the triangle ones are the best looking of the factory wheels. Perhaps they could be even better with body coloured inserts?
