So jealous that you get to drive around north Wales. This car is made for bendy roads.

Trying to persuade my wife that the south of France with a slight detour via the Alps, would be a good summer holiday :D

She doesn't see it the same way!

Oh wow! What an exciting day - I bet you weren't able to sleep last night!

Are you happy with the performance of the 1.4 T so far? There are some really good reviews of it online, it seems to be quite a nippy car?

I am fairly certain, that those of us who have got their car will admit to having a massive grin on our faces when we first drove them!

If I am honest, I don't think I've enjoyed driving a car as much as this!

It's interesting hearing so many people describe a car as "fun" to drive. I don't think I have ever really experienced that LOL.... hopefully soon...

Nice to meet you and yours yesterday - I know you said you were going for a drive, but 300 miles is a fine effort!

I'd have to agree with the Sport button - although it does nothing to the power output, the car does sharpen up and become more 'darty'.

Feel free to pop in for coffee if you're passing, but please don't wear that green hoody again, it clashes with the Lime Green Corsa VXR in the showroom :D

Enjoy your car.
