Thanks. I'm still "learning" the car but with every mile like it more and more. It was worth the wait.

Crikey....that looks familiar! :D

I'm 800 miles into mine now, and have just started to feel comfortable.

the info system takes a little getting use to, but love some of the little touches like being able to change the interior ambient lighting colour.

I'm very happy with the engine. It feels stronger than I expected. So far I have done about 350miles of fairly gentle driving (motorways, A and B road, and some city) with the average consumption 55.5MPG.[hr]

Is that so that you can have an unlucky 13 on your number plates? ;)
Actually, the reg was my wife's idea. I did not mind having a regular "random" number plate. When we found something we both liked we decided to go for it. The price was acceptable too because it is the current number plate style.

I'm going to transfer the number from my current car. It will avoid having an unlucky 13 plate, and it'll be a novelty for me because it's something I've never done before.

And it will confuse/amuse neighbours and acquaintances. :D

Thought about the 'unlucky' 13, but then I am having my private plate put on it so it kind of masks that....thank god :) My dealer is paying and sorting this for me. Took all my details there mid week. Not long left now, been waiting since 11th Nov.

I'm waiting for a nice day so I can put some wax on the car and take a few photos. Will upload some of them as soon as they're done.
