    Order Order

    I am about to order a 2.0T Cabriolet Special Edition for my wife. She has just said that she would like Silver Metalic with a red hood - has anyone come across this combination, if so can you please post some pictures as I need convincing!

    Dealer tells me that factory delivery times are about 12 weeks due to a problem with the headlights - is this true and if that is the case would it be better selling her 05 1.8T Sport privatly as we have been offered 13.75k for it.

    Thanks

    Simon

    Isn't 12 weeks about the normal delivery time anyway?

    I've seen silver with a red hood and it looks OK but you'd be best to judge for yourself.

    I do like the idea of a red roof, but wasn't brave (!) enough to actually order it S-Line spec limits you to black leather, and I assume the SE version is similarly restricted. I think that's a shame; I'd have quite liked red seats (though not in conjunction with a red roof )

    I think red seats and red roof would look sweeeet! On a black car, or silver! Shame you're so limited to black really!

    That was my only dissapointment, I would have paid extra for red leather, as it does indeed look sweet in Black Cars, but not even an option on the SE, same as the S-line.

    After market seats

    I got my seats done in red alcantara centres with black leather bolsters and red stitching by Classic Car Services - very happy with the work. I must have a look at posting some pictures. They charge 1200 + VAT for most combinations of leather and alcantara. http://www.classiccarservices.co.uk/
