Got my TBi!
Well, after the post office nearly sunk my new car by not delivering the docs, finally everything got sorted and I got my shiny Chrimble present - my 159 TBi Ti in Carbonio Black.
Very sad to see my 159 3.2 go, I'll miss the noise and the 4WD (especially in this weather!), but some tales to tell about that car, right to the end. I had a heavy heart when I got to the garage but I'm so pleased with my new car I don't feel as bad as I did.
So, loving the lowered stance of the Ti, the big wheeels and red brake calipers. Inside is very nice, a few wee tweaks from my previous car.
As I took a stock car rather than wait for a factory order, it wasn't quite the spec I wanted. Major missing item was front parking sensors. Lo and behold though, when the new car arrived it does have them, even though this was missing off the spec sheet. Also pleased to see it has electric folding mirrors - the demo car didn't and it wasn't mentioned in the optional spec.
Blue and me is good - worked straight off with my iPhone 3G. Also loving the fuel consumption, no need to tow my own oil refinery with me.
Crap time of year to get a new car though (and not the first time I've done that either). It's filthy already - will be spending tomorrow washing it, then will get some pics.
Merry Christmas to all!
