New car ordered....

Sat Aug 22, 2015 12:15 pm

Not gone down the BMW route again, or quite as extreme as an Audi (there are limits)  8)

No, I've ordered a brand new Mk3 Skoda Superb Lauren & Klement estate with the VW/Audi 190PS 2.0D and Mk5 DSG 4x4 transmission system - and most of the toys.

Should be delivered in November all being well.  VAG are changing UK Spec cars fitted with their electro hydraulic suspension system to a new set of firmware due to the very bad state of our roads!

Got 10% discount so pleased with that - tried for another 1-2% but it's a brand new model not launched officially until next month and the dealer has their car under wraps.

It should like something like this...

Very nice Richard, does this replace the X6?
Is that the colour you have opted for? You do like your pinky reds  :)

Keeping the X as it's just too nice a car.  This one adds to the fleet as the E46 is going back into storage.  It will become the commuter wagon.

Yes it's that colour.  Brunello Red Metallic.  Silver/black/blue/white or green metallics were the other choices and this looked the best in all honesty.  I did like the white but the roads into the office mean it will be a white/beige within a day.. :))

The X colour was the compromise I had to make to get that car....
