    As you have ordered Sat-Nav then you will get the colour DIS for free!

    Does it have full leather seats? If so then I would seriously consider adding the front heated seat option.

    Lets hope the weather stays reasonable for you then, never nice riding in damp/wet conditions.

    Have to get some pics up when you eventually get it.

    In the mean time you'd better learn to do the Sun dance

    That's a full spec. Looks good.

    I went for the heated front seats, and glad that I did as the leather can get quite parky when you first get in!

    The one thing that I did miss, and regret, is a reversing sensor.

    yes i know what you mean about cold seats in winter.I had heated seats on my previous car a e39 5 series. they have three heat settings which was quite good.
    I did think about the parking sensors but I had them on my bmw and to be honest i found them a nuisance.Every time I reversed car into garage they would go off as soon as the car enters the garage area (it would detect the pillar either side of the door) and I actually found them quite distracting rather than useful.(you can turn them off,which I did regular)
    they are quite usefull elsewhere though.

    Im with Steve W with the Parking Sensors. Ive already kissed a parked car 'cos I misjudged the available space (zero street lights before any1 asks!). Also, the multi-function steering wheel should be standard on the Special Editions (it was on mine, 'cos it's Alcantara).

    I've also heard the iPod Connection is crap, you might wanna reconsider that.

    On another note I specced the storage pack, which I'd recommend if the idiots had bothered to add it to my package They gave me a refund for 85 instead; I'd recommend you keep a close eye on the dealer in the run-up.

    thanks for the reply, yes your right the multi function steer wheel is standard on the car i'm ordering,I confused myself with my own handwriting,I had actually wrote on my wish list "HFS" for HEATED FRONT SEATS but when I looked at it recently i read it as "MFS".
    I have read a few comments regarding the I pod connection and people just using an SD card instead but I think I 'll leave it on the list.(even though i havent got an i pod yet or used one ever! )
    I have been in to dealer today to get a print out of the order and triple checked every thing is on that should be so hopefully all will come right on march 1 st. cheeers for now, I'm sure I think of some more questions soon

    Gixer

    Sound like a good spec to me!
    I didnt want to wait 12 weeks but dealer found me one that was close enough to my preferred spec.
    I got:-
    Quattro
    Sat nav
    Front arm rest with phone prep and BT.
    Xenons
    Rear priv glass
    Heated seats
    Bose (shouldnt have bothered sounds worst than my old non-bose system)
    Lava grey (pearl)

    Oh and err Diesel!!

    Dealer has said he can retro-fit rear parking sensors for 400.
    Just trying to get him down on hell crack soon!

    Deuce

    Got any pix? wouldnt mind seeing it in Daytona Grey
    Would have liked that colour, but cost and delivery time put me off.

    Since I got her I haven't taken any pics weirdly enough. Might do some this wkend, but she needs a wash so it'll be far from showcase quality if you catch my drift.
