    Did about a 20 mile drive, ended up in dynamic mode about 1/2 way through, but didn't push it too much as very early days, so far C.O.D. is an amazing engine, very quite, smooth and refined, very impressed so far. I went to pull out of a junction in 4th gear by mistake and although was a bit slow obviously, it did do it without the slightest sign of juddering or stalling even though my pervious car would have struggled, car is quick, surprisingly so, you get from 0 - 30, 30 - 60, 60 - ** really quickly and just keeps going, the previous fastest car i had was a 2007 2.2 ltr deisel civic 0 - 60 in 8.4 second, so not used to amazingly fast cars, but feels quicker than any thing else i have had, so have to keep an eye on speedo.

    Only picked up at 5pm and Was / is too dark so will do photos tomorrow !

    They do say now that the engines have been near enough run in whilst in the factory so dont need to run them in as much as used to, according to alot of people - as long as its warm then its fine to give it some beans apperently but thats good news. Ive came from a 2.0 170 A3 Sportback so hoping i dont feel the power difference down to 150 .. but i have been driving a 1.0 aygo for the last 3 weeks so it wouldnt surprise me if it feels like a rocket ! and yes make sure you get some snaps up

    Cheers Fragup! cannot wait to test it out!

    I am going to take it easy first but like Grant says, Its very rare you have to "ease" the car in these days. Will still take it easy for first 600 miles or so then give it a bit of a blast!

    Not long now!

    Got a phone call this morning from the dealer, my car is in the country. Should pick her up in about a week.

    It was built at the end of week 46 i think.

    My car only just arrived in UK! How did I fall so far behind in the race? At least I just had the fun of selecting my reg number, though they were admittedly pretty uninspiring.

    I've just been handed a bombshell!

    Signed all my documents the other day, picking car up on Saturday - all good.

    Got a phone call last night from dealer, he has messed up on finance and has missed off my comfort pack. meaning my finance is an extra £15 per month.

    Not really happy about it although he is a spot on and mistakes happen but I'm going to try and use this to my advantage.

    I personally feel they should bite the bullet and leave everything as is and they take the hit. He is going to speak to the manager and see what can be done but going to go tonight and finish it.

    What's everyones views?

    Yes there was a mistake, however, it was their mistake and they should take the hit or offer you some sweeteners, free service or goodies.

    pretty much same mate! I put £1700 deposit in as well though!

    Yeah diesel is more expensive so probably works out the same!

    I'm going from a diesel to be honest! I got sick of having the DPF filter being cleaned and the loud noise since it was only a small A1. Plus I hardly do any miles so not really worth it for me!

    I dont blame you for wanting the torque! Althought the 1.4 COD has decent torque for petrol! Tbh every engine is good lol

    Oh and my dealer got back to me about payments and they are going to take the hit!! damn right haha
