Nice, but I wouldn't bet on that fuel consumption figure being attained in day-to-day use.

Great stuff!
Re MPG, Given that the claimed combined figure of 35 mpg is only 4 higher than the 2.2, you might expect 27-29mpg in real life which is acceptable I reckon.

I tend to find that the actual figure you get comes out similar to the "urban" figure they quote - until you mod the car and gain a few mpg

I found with the 2.2 I'd get within 10% of the combined and it's the same with the Rocco.

well I average 28-29mpg in my 2.2 Spider

dropping 6 tax groups for company cars is a HUGE difference tho
