    hey all, enjoyed reading the posts so far, went for a test drive of a nitrous blue RS yesterday.. Deposit paid today! Due to arrive before my wedding in April and opted for everything bar the sunroof, active city stop start and door protectors… Can’t wait!

     

    will undoubtedly start buying the odd bits before the car comes as you do! ?

    Welcome!

    Where is Scotland are you from? Where did you test drive?

    You are lucky getting quite a quick delivery as other dealers still stating 1 years waiting list.

    Cheers David!, you’ll have had a restless nights sleep last night no doubt after all the waiting haha. I live pretty much behind the kelpies and I work in Edinburgh so il no doubt pass a few members on my daily commute at some point haha.

    Youll need to post pictures once you’ve had a good drive! What spec have you ordered?!

    Likewise mate! Only gripe my other half has had about the new car is she doesn’t want to see a load of blue focus rs’s in the area when we get ours… I’m Still not changing it to grey haha. Where did you work? I’m in the motor trade myself but I work in Edinburgh

    Ordered blue also but nowhere near you so she’ll be fine 🙂 .Mine  wants me to cancel so trying everything to keep her on-side, i’m afraid its the wait, knew on order day it was going to be a year which she finds unacceptable and what with having a couple of projected build months come and go it only strengthens her feelings on the matter but last update still shows Nov build and hopefully that means about Xmas time for delivery.

    Used to work with Car User which towards the end of our company became Motorworld had a shop in the town centre think it was up about Howgate, main competitor were Skidz if memory serves correctly. Now work over in Islay in the whisky industry,  so  far to my knowledge i’m only person on the Island that has one on order looking fwd to a blast round the single tracks and a nice long 8 mile straight all be it built on top of the peat bogs.

    Ordered a few wee bits n bobs already, got some seatcovers from Capital seating ( daily driver and a dirty job don’t go well) , dmb graphics, spare alloy n tyre ( through Stevie) and took advantage of the group buy on the Disklok and now the Ghost System.

    Its a great group and lot of good info and offers come from it.

    So picked the RS up this afternoon – and it almost went ok…

    Paint defect on the A pillar, scratched plastic on the rear passenger door, and despite me telling them not to drill the front bumper for the plates (even providing the Velcro), they still drilled it.

    But I kept it together, didn’t lose the plot, but they will all be getting rectified!

    Then had a great drive home ?

    See, we weren’t looking for a new car Stuart I just went out fancied a drive and ended up ordering one after asking if I’m aloud too first as you do haha. The waits going to be awful, been a few years since I had a hot hatch and my last fun car was a TTRS I never used often due to a 80ish mile commute to work at the time and I had use of a cheaper car!
    David, can’t wait to see some pictures mate! And with us fellas all being reasonably local ill be keeping an eye out for you on the road! Glad they’re fixing the small issues and it’s also good to hear what they are for other buyers

    Car is going to the detailer at the weekend – will get some pictures up then. I didn’t get the dealer to clean it at all to avoid any unnecessary damage, so it looks pretty rank just now.

    Almost 200 miles done already ?
