    Not at all, Mike said they should receive it Thursday/Friday this week, then I'll go pick it up on the 6th. So they'll have 5 working days to do a PDI. He said in an email they'd need 3 so I've actually been reasonably patient!

    Did you have any luck with regards to petrol and travel costs?

    Yeah I think I'm going to wait for the lightning cable, even if it means I've got to travel back 4 and a bit hours without Spotify. ARGHH!

    I'll put the songs I 'own' on the memory card though, even if they're a bit out of date. I might even buy a CD!

    I had the same offer, but requested he pick me up in an R8 to which he countered with an A1!

    Can't decide whether to half my journey and stay at a friends in Sheffield Thursday night so I've only got a 3 hour journey to Carlisle the next morning or whether to do all 5 hours on the morning of pick up day.

    If I go to Sheffield I'll get to the dealers at 12, if I don't I'll get to the dealers at 2! First world problems ey!

    agree. It would also mean that you get to drive back in some light to see what its like and in the dark.

    Thanks people!

    Decided to travel down on the train, setting off at 08.40, arriving in Carlisle at 2. At least I'll get to do my inspection in the daylight. At least that way I'll get a good nights sleep before pickup!

    Stopping off at Sheffield on the way back to show off the new car to former Uni friends that still live there & go out for a meal with them too. Should also help break up the return leg.

    Hopefully see some panther goodness under bright city lights!

    Enjoy the day. It will be great.

    I remember my handover day and the feelings of anticipation on the train, right up to first drive off the forecourt.

    He'll be busy playing and will have forgotten about us for now.

    I suspect the R8 is very unlikely as would detract from the buzz of the new car, even if it is an S3, and the last thing a salesman wants is for the customer leaving the forecourt with a "meh, it's lovely but compared to the R8 it's....."

    John.
