I'm sure it will be worth the (seemingly interminable) wait Perreby.

I have clocked 330miles now.

Impressions:
Likes:

Love the looks. Its a stunning looking car
Engine noises at any revs (especially the induction noises and waste gate flutter)
Exhaust cracks on upshifts
Pops and bangs as the revs drop
Road noise and wind noise is not NEARLY as bad as the press would have you believe
The ride is not nearly as hard as I thought it was gonna be. My Abarth 500 SS was a harsher ride
The steering is lovely.
The view in your wing mirrors is fantastic. Those intakes looks so hot.
The car absolutely hauls! Especially in Dynamic when you put your foot down. The noise coming from the engine when it knows you planted your right foot is unreal. Love the different gearbox mappings for the different modes. Natural and All-weather nice and smooth, Dynamic and Race a little bit more wild.
The TFT display is clear and easy to see every thing on it. Love it.

Dislikes:
Rear visibility is non existent. PDC helps a little but not a lot. Reversing is an act of faith.
The amount of attention it gets from "boy racers". Every second idiot thinks you want to race.

Was it worth the wait!?

ABSOLUTELY!!! I LOVE IT!!
