    Picked it up yesterday at 3pm, loving it, the red/black leather with the ibis white looks awesome. I fitted the wheels this morning and they really suit the car - filling the arches out nicely, and the ride doesn't sem to have suffered. I have decided not to lower it as I think it looks good as is. I covered 450 miles so far, as am up in the lake District for the week - First tank averaged 29.7 MPG, not bad considering I was sitting between 60-80 all the way up.

    Pics to follow as soon as possible, sometime tomorrow when I get my camera out -although the car is now covered in road salt etc

    Just passed the 500 miles mark, and really pleased with it - so glad I made the move back to a hatchback after the 335. In my opinion, the wheels really suit it and the car seems to turn a few heads wherever I go......

    Once Ive had it valeted next week Ill get some proper one's taken:icon_thumright:

    Like the wheels Oli, but not black and red leather with the white, you should have just gone for one or the other!

    Hi Oli,

    How are you handling the run-in period? Sticking to half revs or giving it plenty of beens?

    Cheers,
    Dan

    I have only ever run new cars in for 200 miles max, to let the brakes bed in, and then drive them normally after that - This is the way a lot of tuners recommend to run an engine in, if at all

    Can't fault it Oli, looks great mate. Very individual choice of spec and wheels. I'm surprised how small the 19's look with them being gunmetal grey. Seem to fill the arches nicely without being lowered as well.

    The pictures dont actually do the wheels justice - They look huge, much bigger than my 19" BBS CH's, looked on both my R32 and GTI!!

    Hmm, i do still fancy some of those Bimoto's with the diamond cut face.... Wish people wouldn't start threads like this, they get expensive.
