    No way, they are horrid! My car is all about fast! When did you last see a fast/race car with roof rails?

    I thought that may be a better option than a new set of rims ;-) 1 December - 1 March maybe???

    I always thought you shouldn't machine polish a car let alone a new one...doesnt it damage the paintwork long term

    My detailer advised against any orange peel removal on a brand new car after I enquired. He also found new Audi's to have some of the best finishes in the market and that bmw were notoriously bad when it came to factory orange peel. A light machine polish to remove, if any, swirls or light scratches and thorough interior, exterior clean and seal will suffice. Should hope so at £200+!

    Very very nice, tell us a little more about your driving experience ? How is the ride, comfy or hard ? How is the steering feedback ? Is it better than expected ? Any negative points ?

    Not want to upgrade the footwells and puddles to the brighter panels on this one Silky?

    Also change the red door and glove to LED?

    What? So you can upgrade further than what the interior light pack provides assuming silky has this?

    ah Silky, I am in love. With the car of course. I have one like this coming except with silver rails and a pano roof. I am so please to see how great this car looks the way you have configured it. It has also helped me to decide to choose white on black plates. I think they will work really nicely.

    Only 4 mths to wait. I am struggling to know if I should add the folding mirrors, but it looks to me like the money could be better spent on paint protection with one of those ceramic sort of things.

    And the driving is?...

    Hi guys new here.....this has thrown me big time, love the blue, but ordered silver......I'm struggling to find good photos of other colours...GOOD photos.....you may of just turned my order over. Lovely looking car, I need rails for my mtb....but I think they'd look good.

    Welcome mate, the SB in my opinion looks better with rails hence my order.
    It was always going to be Estoril Blue for me as it's a fantastic colour and an S only colour too!!
    The problem of finding GOOD pics just now is the fact that there are few people actually collected their cars which is frustrating for those of us who have ordered and have to wait.
    I am lucky enough to have now seen Estoril in different light situations as a work colleague has now collected his 3dr.

    The silver you have ordered, as silvers go is actually a nice one and should be uncommon i think so might be a good shout.......decisions decisions!!!!!

    when is your's being built?
