Getting My New Car on Monday YAY

I am getting my new GP 1.4 Sporting in New Orleans Blue on Monday, can't wait. I asked the dealer about the new badges and he said that they will not appear on other cars other than the new Bravo and then the 500 till later in the year.

So looks like I will be getting the old Blue badges. I am gonna paint the Brake Calipers red I think, didn't think that was a good colour to go with the blue but having seen some pics of the blue with e red calipers I think it looks pretty good.

Just hope it goes with no problems and that everything works as it should.

Re: Getting My New Car on Monday YAY

I am getting mine from Bickets in Kilmarnock, It better be open or there will be a brick through their window lol,

Though I don't think places like that shut for the fair it tends to be industries that shut for the fortnight though I think less and less places are doing it now.

Re: Getting My New Car on Monday YAY

Well despite my accident on Friday I now have my Nice New GP Sporting and have to say I am well happy. Its been a stressful weekend not knowing what would happen but the Garage have taken the car and have arranged with the Insurance to have it repaired and they will pay them for it.

Car drives well, quite impressed. Comfortable to drive. Have played with then Blue and Me, I've also updated it and the TXT message reader seems to work fine. Its something else, something to show off with lol.

Anyway thanks for all your support and I'll put up some pics once I have done what I am gonna do to it.

Re: Getting My New Car on Monday YAY

Got mine too, it's now done 42 miles... oooooh!

When I uploaded my phonebook it seems to have put the letter 's' before each entry... maybe my phone ain't compatible - it's a Samsung D800.

Not tried a USB stick for MP3s yet cos the missus has it in her handbag . Plays MP3 CDs well but was a wee bit annoyed the titles appear in the centre console but not on the screen next to the speedo, etc.

LOVE THE CAR THOUGH!!!
