    Your car in bay 80 seemed to have its ride height a little high for my liking. Oops. Wrong bay.

    Bay 79 it is. I will wait for the daylight photos.

    Good luck with the collection this morning!

    Two quality tunes Sandra,thank you. I thought it was going to be a manic Monday when the dealer rang and said" hi Mark valeter has just come to me, there is a half inch (I thought OMG scratch) split in one of the window rubbers (and breathe) at the rear quarter" I thought thank god for that so the part has been ordered and will be fitted at a later date.

    2 hours to go.

    This can't be right - I get just about as excited about other people's countdowns as I do with my own! Not long now Mark. Looking forward to pics!

    Well back from my drive and have got to say the car is fantastic. Managed to get my phone,iPod etc working and managed to work most other things out, will have a read of the manual tonight. The only thing that lets things down for me, is the plasticky interior door handles, I would defo have gone for the extended mono pur finish had I known, but that is only a very minor thing and will certainly not effect my ownership.

    Did about 70 mile mixed driving, car was quicker than I remembered ( I have been running around in a fiesta 1.25 ) and did surprise me. Economy is fantastic considering car is new, 35 mile trip home mainly motorway at 75mph on cruise saw 57 mpg and 53mpg for the whole trip, unbelievable. Oh that's in Dynamic mode.

    Got to mention Liverpool Audi, they were great car was given a body care treatment free and was given a full car care kit. The window trim damage they reported to me was absolutely nothing, it was just like a rubber tag on the surface that I wouldn't of noticed anyway and I am sure it will trim up with a sharp blade. I have decided rather than them removing the glass to fit the new trim I will keep the car as it is, seem pointless taking my new car apart.

    There was I nice S5 convertable outside the dealers awaiting collection also today,belonging to a certain Steven Gerrard.

    Pics later, if they load onto the iPad in time.
