Not a cheap option that - and rarely specced without some weird spec choices in other areas!

Looks a winner


I was using it on the way back from Huddersfield on the M1, parts of it had road works and you could only do 50mph (variable speed cameras) and this lasted for 45 minutes. It was time to test the adaptive cruise control and it worked a treat, just set the speed to 52mph and relaxed, the car brakes automatically when it senses a car is in front (you can set the gap between 2-6 car lengths) and accelerates automatically for you when the gap widens again (no wonder its so expensive as an extra, think it's £3495)

Thought I'd share some photos from our trip to Ilfracombe last week, car is very dirty after the 5 hour trip. †The drive there was superb †







Not sure why the picture quality is very poor, they are really nice before I upload them on SRS??

Thanks for your comments guys.  

I really enjoyed it there, a lovely place to take the family for a short break. The speed boat safari was amazing

Thanks mate, I was not sure about red but really love it now. I went for the car as it had all the extras I wanted + more and I know how rare they are in this spec. † †

A little update for you all, was at MRC last Saturday




All I can say is WoW, the car is an absolute beast , I could not stop  
on my way home.

Very composed when driving normal but put your foot down and the car does not spot accelerating, it is a breath taking experience.  The gear changes on auto mode is seamless with the DSG map, it revs a lot higher after second gear (1 & 2nd gears will change at stock rpm but from 3rd onwards it hits the redline or there abouts)

Very impressed with MRC

Seems about the norm figure now i.e. 480ish.  

Graphs really tell the story don't they.  Ive been close to going for it so many times but keep holding back on it for one reason or another.

Who are you with for insurance and what were they like with the increase?

I had to pay £125 extra, I'm sure at renewal I will get the premium lower again
