    :Happy:

    Thats all I can say!

    Utterly over the moon with the car. Just can't explain in words at how fantastic this machine is!

    Some pics for you!

    And in case anyone was wondering, I got the car via Holdcroft Honda - they came out with the best deal for me and I cannot fault them in anyway at all.

    They moved heaven and Earth to seal the deal - so a BIG thank you goes out to all the HH team that I dealt with on this purchase, and a special mention/thank you to Beefy (I have your piccies!!) for fitting the accessories this past weekend too.

    Totally love this car, so easy to drive, masses of room. Perfect!

    Very nice looking. Have you come to grips with all of the technology yet? It is rocket science.

    Gosh no!

    The books that came with the car are like a portable library!

    I did manage to set up the home-lights feature and the tyre pressure/inflation warning system. The SatNav seems easy enough to use. Not convinced that I will ever use the DAB radio, but all in all, it is jam-packed with things I have to learn/read up on!

    Beautiful car - like the colour. I've had mine for 2 weeks now and I am over the moon with it. Still discovering all the techy bits.

    I hope, and am confident, you will be thrilled with it

    Yes I am totally loving it. As with all things - just wish I had bit the bullet earlier, but sadly had to wait until the stars aligned for it to happen.

    Yes - everyone has complemented me on it - if only because its all colour coded. Makes all the difference!

    It most certainly IS!

    I also have the Illumination Pack on it - obviously will wait till its dark (not now - CBA), and show you the interior and exterior lights it has. This is one car I will not need to "mod" - its all done for me :Happy:

    I didn't realise that had to be set up. I had better look into it. I've been spending more time getting the tow bar electrics set up. There is conflicting information about current draw for the ATC, so I have been wiring up a 13 pin extension lead so that I don't have to move the caravan.

    Spoiler is not standard - optional extra, but I got it as part of my customised package.

    Send me PM!

    As I had opined before, the grey trim was horrible and I wanted it colour coded and in fairness, HH have done such a great job, you can't tell that it was ever anything other than black. And thanks for the photos of the factory fitting beefy! :Thumbup:
