    Delighted you're happy.
    I'm going to buy one myself after the new model sportback has been around for 12 months or so.
    After all, buying the first of the new model just makes you an unpaid Beta model tester for the maker.
    It'll be an S-tronic of course - a manual is a bit like the difference between a twin-tub washing machine and an automatic! How many of you use a twin-tub? lol.

    I'm working on the pics. Extra's I have are Sat Nav, Armrest, Flat bottom Steering Wheel don't quote me but am I right in thinking that auto lights were an option think that covers it. Just need to get cruise control retro fitted and looking to source a new Sat Nav screen only I'm not sure if that's even possible?!

    Who do people recommend for doing work like retro fitting cruise and more specialised stuff lie that? Do not mind travelling to far if they are highly recommended.

    Oh by way I'm in between Grantham and Melton so not to far away from me XFi.

    Its just the screen that is not in the best shape. I was just trying to think of the most cost effective way of getting it sorted a new sat Nav would surely cost a fortune?

    Remap is on the cards depends what the insurance company says haha.

    not sure if this is possible and cost effective, new sat nav is around 500+ for a 2010 unit and around 280-350 for a pre 2010 unit

    Im in the pre 2010 bracket just need to find somebody who can help me see if I can replace the screen and if so what the cost will be so I can weigh it up against replacing the whole thing.

    I had some read and new screens are about £160 and they're easy to replace.
