    going to bed early just does not work for me as I just can't sleep 'cos of the building excitement.

    Missed this - thanks Sandra - you must be very busy just now. I should be getting the 'train' to collect my new A3 next week, but got a letter from DVLA today. My £25 cheque was not accepted to transfer private plate nominee, since £55 first registration was not included. I had passed all this to dealer to sort out, so either a mistake or admin blunder from DVLA. Whatever the reason, not good news. I called both today, DVLA was 'closed' and dealer staff was not in till Monday.

    Can it really be this hard .....

    Sadly not on a train today to collect my A3, since registration documents still with DVLA, can't beleive that 'admin' takes this long. Should I have collected with a 63 plate and changed later? New job doesn't start till later next month, but .....

    Nope. I sent my £25 change of 'nominee' fee to dealer, who was then meant to send this and first registration to DVLA. Somehow this did not process correctly and first registration fee was resent to DVLA last Wednesday. Anyone got any ideas for a reg transfer?

    Not sure if I badger dealer if this will hasten DVLA, tbh.

    Thanks for the tune, though!

    Hi Sandra,

    After a week of phone calls to DVLA and 2 (yes, 2!!) lost cheques for £55, DVLA on Friday afternoon, has processd my first registration. Dealer and DVLA have blamed one another, leaving me with a very frustrating and lengthy delay.

    So, after all that, I am hopefully collecting Wed/Thu next week.

    Thanks for your top tune!!

    Good point, snakehips!

    Just arrived in Bristol, after a 2 and a half hour drive. Sat Nav is fantastic, sport seats are great, and averaged 45 mpg driving just below 70 mph. All good!!

    Pics to follow soon.
