Just to shut Fraser up - ordered a Ti

As it says,

Find out later if its red or grey, wanted any colour except black, the dealer is having a hunt round to see what he can find, there are only a few left in the country and as we know, the factory's shut.

More later.

P.S 2.4 manual 210.

I didnt Oz, I went through the figures with Chris a while back and he couldnt quite get down to the deal I had.

Then I wasnt buying at all, due to an issue with my job.

Then in a rush, it was back on again, so I went back to the other (english) dealer and ressurected the deal.

Its OK - I havent got it from Arnold Clark!

And its on Incluso.

At least it wasn't from AC

Surprises me Chris couldn't at least match an Incluso deal, but never mind, at least you have a good place local to get it serviced.

Let's hope you like the colour you get

Re: Just to shut Fraser up - ordered a Ti

Excellent. I had the same problem with colour. Wanted Red, got offered Black or Grey. Chose the latter & well pleased.

No the black 159 goes, but I still have a 2005 147 as well and the father in law has my 2003 156.

DW indeed, yes.

Re: Just to shut Fraser up - ordered a Ti

The car is excellent The only things I'd wish for was some better stowage space for the cabin (the 3 series cup holders are the biz), slightly better turn in / steering bite (like the V6 GT) and better slow speed driveability.

Of course, some additional petrol slurping horses wouldn't go amiss either

Good choice What's Incluso BTW

Someone pointed out her Picanto may have cup holders too.

I like your grey one and that looks to be the most likely option.

Re: Just to shut Fraser up - ordered a Ti

I prefer the grey, as I said before it softens the bling look of the Ti.
