  • 1000 miles up!!

    Well have finally run in car...

    My initial mpg of 35 mpg has now realistically dropped to 27mpg ish as you all told me..... :?

    How have i found the car?

    Ok

    Overall i am extremely pleased with the car....
    It drives fantastically , the build quality apart from door pockets is fantastic with good solid doors and interior trim seems pretty good.

    The paintwork is very good around 135 microns across the board (more of this later in detail post) and the flake is very good in good light!!!

    If i was single i could have had a hareem in the car by now and roy cropper would have chrisened the back seats because this car seriously turns heads everywhere it goes!! I have even had chat at 40mph through specs cameras on m1 with gorgeous ladie going to a wedding in north london in clio in middle lane.......wow

    The practicality of this car with a child is also fine......My son manages fine in it and can even press all the buttons from his seat in the front when im not looking so my car is like a sauna one minute and sport modeing the next....

    The rear view is a touch limited but due to styling thats the price to pay!!

    The tyres supplied contis seem fine to me although a touch twitchy in the wet and rim protection is limited.....

    If i was to be brutally honest and point the negatives out they would be.....

    The folding door mirrors are tempramental.....

    They do not always work at once but work eventually.....

    I think you need to listen for the relay to click before retrying as this seems to work and my drivers side has slowed on inswing compared to passenger side but has now corrected itself!!!

    I am not concerned enough to warrant a trip to dealers though as may be freeing itself up and being new may be swell of plastic due to temp changes in last week!!

    Secondly and my only other negative is the quality of the windows in the doors......

    I have had them diamond polished to try and take out some of the distortion seen when viewing down the length of the car....They ripple like a funfair silly mirror slightly but i am really fussy so maybe this is acceptable!!!!

    So if thats my only bad points then this is a superb result from Vauxhall and my dealership have rung me twice now to see how its going and my salesman asked me to pop in to see car when finished detailing!!!!

    I never got a phone call from bmw or renault in 5 years....

    Not bad so far.......well impressed!!!!

    Now for the ipod connection!!! :wink:

                            Well done on the new motor. Have to say that it seems to get better with a few more miles. I got mine 1st of March and now have 3,500 up and it seems to be getting quicker. But I've noticed one problem - I now find myself held up by motorcyclists who look really surprised when I overtake!!

                            As for the door mirrors - all our cars with them seem flaky too but I'm sure a friendly Transit driver will solve the problem when they've refused to fold. Have fun!!

                              I'm so glad you told me how many microns the car had. Do you recon this would be standard on most e.g mine?
