Finally, She's here and she's amazing......
Well the 147 is finally here and in my garage.
The dealer had her outside in the sun (yesterdays weather was ok) with a reveal cloth over her and she looked the business.
The wheels are particularly nice, the red leather looks the part with the Africa Grey, and the whole thing is just gorgeous. Build quality, with 2 tiny niggles, is excellent.
Its a lot nicer to drive and a lot better than the red demo. In fact you would be hard pressed to think they came out of the same factory.
the sun roof mechanism is the best I have ever seen in a car, even mercs and beemers do not have that many settings to a sun roof!
The Connect Nav+ and Bose sysetm are opposition crushing on a scale I can barely compare. Even the S-Class Mercs and the latest BMW 7 have not got such a simple and effective system. The voice recognition system is first rate.
Bust most of all, it just looks - well, exquisite.
