Talking Finally picked up my Doblo

Got my 1.9 jtd Active yesterday - have to say that we're mighty impressed.

Hand over was actually enjoyable? That's a first. Especially as the specification on my Active was better than expected; multi function trip computer and one touch driver's window??? Wonder if that is now the norm on an Active or was that what was in the parts bin on the assembly line that shift?

I had some fun today though. I'd been given a couple of 'clear' L.E.D. indicator bulbs for the rear light clusters ( I know, a mod-ed Doblo ). I followed the instructions in the Handbook to the letter on how to remove the cluster, right up to the point that they DON'T tell you that the nut that is loosened inside the vehicle has about a 99.9% chance/CERTAINTY that it will come off the little plastic tool to ease its removal/DROPPING into the body work.... I spent ten minutes removing the plastic shelf/speaker only to discover that I still couldn't see the bolt.
THEN I realised that if I'd prised off the little vent at the bottom I could have retrieved it in about ten seconds

Needless to say I was a lot more careful with the second one.

Drivability, space & comfort are impressive for a 'van', or as my father described it, "I hate to tell you - that's not a car, its a bus that's shrunk in the rain".

Congratulations Alex. Choosing a Doblo is certainly going against the grain. Enjoy it.
