    Right, with the car now built, I'm going to be irritating to the dealer and call for regular updates. On the whole I've been happy with the experience so far, although most of the info (built by etc) has been found out when I've called them to check a point , not them keeping me in the loop! So slightly irritated about this, but its a very minor one.. starting to get excited now everything is starting to come together...

    I know! I'm a tad suprised that I haven't been given a more concrete date to be honest, especially considering that people who ordered previously were told "yes can collect 1st Sept" when the car wasn't even in the country yet! I've fired off an email to the dealer asking for more information. Hopefully he can give me more specifics - like whether its left germany yet!

    We are now in the final countdown... Moneys all paid ( although I got charged £30 for the privilege.. damn the banks).. now its down to the agonising 7 day wait till next friday! I did get asked by the dealer if I want to go and see her before then, but I think I can contain myself.. Although would it be worth it to see what the state of the paintwork etc is like?
