Cool Mark,  sucks about the chip, are you going to take it in and get them to do the bonnet? Well i want to moan really i do, but i fear there is an add on missing already, i got this......feeling, something is amiss.! 
 
The ST2, yea i wouldn't mind one of them, but... I have a Honda Fireblade, need i say anything else.  Though granted, pressing a throttle and having the car stick to a corner IS a different hairs on the back of the neck moment then doing the same on a bike by twisting a throttle.
 
Saying that, when you !Removed! all over a 150 K sports car, i swear i nearly crack my lid with the widest smile.  But if i could, i would have an ST....  Cos they are dam sexy!


I know about the rush of riding bikes as had Fireblades myself an my last bike was a Aprillia RSV factory an finally gave up riding bikes in 2006 .
Got to go back to my dealer about some marks on the rear bumper and will mention the stone chip on the bonnet as well plus i have had a moan as car had hardly any fuel in it , took £60.00 to fill up wen i took delivery as the light was on and the dealer said he'd take me down the garage once i use some fuel up and fill the tank up for me :) have used nearly half tank so far in 160 odd miles and the average mpg is going up all the time even giving it some welly , its doing nearly 28mpg now :) the handbook says you shouldn't work out the mpg during the first 1000 miles as this is the running in period and wen its done at least 2000 miles will it then give a clearer indication of the mpg .

I know a chap with an RSV, in beautiful condition, cannot ride it anymore!  Put his foot down a mole hole in a field and shattered his ankle, poor bloke, gutted for him.

 

Well, at least the mpg is, rising!  Yes my 2011 car, i was told to ignore the mpg till at least 2.5 - 3k, seriously if there are marks, then i would NOT be happy, especially if there are some on the back bumper you seen in addition to the chip on the bonnet..

Really....Blimey!

 

I noted that the mpg figures were better for the new face lift model compared to my 61 plate TDCi, by about 10 mpg.  So that's encouraging...  I went for the 1.6 TDCi over the eco boost 125bp on account of doing more motorway and main road travelling now, and for the next 6 months at least.  Even when i did live and work local, i would go 3.5 weeks before seeing the fuel light, and that was using it every day.

 

 

 

 

Well, mine is now on its way from the compound to the dealers, bit worried it may be driven and not transported, (chips n the like) plus its approximately 40 miles away, and that seems a lot for delivery miles, besides what its already done??  I'm booked in to go see it Monday morning... Before its registered!

Quite sure I have an Econetic engine, the gearing is a lot different to my old prefacelift.

 

Mine's covered in fallout, and I have 2 horrible area's of paintwork that now need fixing -.- so do give it a good check all over. Mine had 7 miles delivery, my old prefacelift had 57, and that was delivery, travel between 3 dealers, and then to a 4th to have some paintwork done before delivery.

Mine had a 9 mile road test on the PDI as its in my service book on page 23 , i gave strict instructions that i did'nt want mine driven from the dealers holding compound an to go on there low loader on the 20 odd miles trip to the service workshop for the PDI etc !
The salesman then go collect it and drive about 2miles to the showroom , however i think they went for a drive in it as it had more like 20miles on the clock wen i collected it an were clever enough to change the trip computer onto average speed rather than show distance in miles the car had been driven .
So yes i agree you do have to check the miles on the odometer wen collecting your cars , look on the PDI page in the service book and if the odometer shows average speed or instantaneous fuel consumption wen swictching on the ignition press the indicator trip button to check how many miles it's done before driving away from the dealer as they shouldn't really have more than 10miles Tbh on a PDI road test .

Took my car in today to have the marks on the bumper looked at and they polished them out so all is good apart from the chip on the bonnet which i will touch in over the weekend . My dealer also took me down the garage an put  £25.00 of fuel in the tank as it had none in wen i collected it .

Yes i noticed all models are coming with the Econetic badge now....!

 

I will, but i have already been advised it will have 50 miles on it, as the Dealers own compound is 35 miles away!  Or i wait my turn for the transporter to delivery all cars to all dealers in the area.  I am assured it will remain covered in protective plastic, it will be valeted before i view it, and valeted again and checked all over for marks, outside and inside.

Picked mine up on Thursday White Zetec s TDCI  looks great, has the sports pedals which are OK so far.  100miles on the clock and averaging 44mpg, just filled up again and range indicating at 360miles, lets see how good it is.

 

Dealer told me anyone ordering a new one today will have to wait at  least a month before its even made !

Yes mine had the sports pedals too.  I got back after an hour drive home and was on 53.9 and it was rising, average motorway speeds in rush hour..
