That a nice looking motor

Anyway back to more mundane things, the slight clonk on the gearbox when first engaging gear, was out in mine yesterday and there was no discernable noise when engaging gear, cold or warm forward or reverse.
Hope that helps

Thanks for that mate , something not quite right with mine so booked in with dealer to be looked at

Went to London this week in it, horrendous weather and traffic but this car made it effortless, set active cruise and relaxed all the way there

The active cruise is amazing, I always try and anticipate what's it's going to do, but great in stop start motorway traffic especially with a caravan in tow.
By the way it will warn and disengage in very poor visibility such as fog, as it uses the camera to look at the car in front, and presumably the radar for obstructions closer to. Sensible I suppose otherwise it could drive to quickly and blindly in fog etc.
