Not fair - I order a WHOLE DAY EARLIER and we get the same build date???? :lol:

Good stuff. So long as I have it before September 7th I'm happy.

It looks great Ben--nice personal plate too.

The colour's a lot darker than the one I saw in my dealer's showroom.

I wonder if it's thanks to the camera you were using........... :rolleyes:

On colour, black was my second choice with probably white as my third choice.

Just goes to show that things are worth waiting for after all. ;)

Hay Ben

Have you sorted out your foot-well lights yet?

I just thought. You may just be missing the bulbs. All the connections may be in place ready. I heard awhile ago that interior bulbs are some times accidentally missed off the cars as they move along the production line. No one knows why but it has happened a lot. :unsure:

Also when do I get to see this car? You know that you are welcome to come round. just say when.

Lol, it's dirty from lots of use.... However asking passengers to take their shoes off ;) ;) lol. Will need a quick shake/Hoover sunday and be as new again since no one been in back and minimal passengers.

I've done like 800 miles already tho, bah!!! !Removed! 100 miles a day for commute to work, starting to feel more responsive tho :)

pedals, yes very easy to fit!! Literally u pull the current clutch and brake off, the rubber is moulded around the metal!! And the new ones peal back on. Very firm and safe. I was confused at first untill I got the current ones off. Will take a bit of effort and force tho.

But good result, just need to get chrome inside door Handles now as they are a bit of a Let down.....

Ben :)

It's amazing how dirty they get. Mine needs a hoover out and a wash but this bad weather means I can't do it. I bought wet look tyer spary today. I've had the car 2 weeks 1 day, today and I've not curbed the alloys so I'm so proud of my self for it.

Am I so wrong for wanting a Squeeze Green one??

Talking about Squeeze green I saw one today.........in the pub!

I decided to take Mrs Hedgepig out for lunch so we stopped at a little pub in the country and.........there she was!

No, not a Fiesta.........but a very pretty girl dressed in a bright green skirt! :lol:

Naturally, being a red blooded male, I couldn't keep my eyes off her; needless to say I wasn't too popular with the OH until I explained that the only reason I was looking at her was because her skirt reminded me of.................Squeeze Fiestas!!

Phew.......got away with that one after all!!!! ;) ;)

No, I'm safe Paul--she doesn't read anything car related--she just enjoys driving them!

Good job for me I guess--there might have been a few close shaves otherwise!!! ;)
