Ouch is definitely the word lol. as much as I would love to use Vpower At the silly prices petrol is today standard unleaded is fine lol. Do you really notice a difference using vpower over standard?

Not really, though i only had 1 tank of standard petrol (came with the car) and i was driving more carefully.

I dont think i can justify V-Power tbh... though i do tell myself eh so what, if your going to spend £40+ quid on petrol what's wrong with spending another £1-2 for a tank of decent petrol that'll keep your engine clean (That being said, i dont actually know if its £1-2!... its £1.25/litre compared to £1.18/litre)

I mainly use it because it has the cleaning stuff in it, but no doubt i'll go back to standard petrol if the prices go up anymore, but i deffo wont be using any supermarket fuels

Still No car - The latest Saga

Well was meant to be getting my new car today and I spoke to the garage first thing to confirm and was told everything was ok. However about 20 mins later he called me back to say they had just discovered the car had been damaged . He said the door had been scratched however they had the same car in (though with leather interior) and they would swap the door over.

So I took a drive over to see it and suggested to the salesman about getting the one with the leather instead for the same price but he said they wouldn't do that as it was too expensive.

However on looking at the damage we discovered that it wasn't just the door but the rear panel and the side skirt as well. So he says to me "tell me now that you are rejecting the car due to the damage and you would like the leather one instead". So I said that and he said on I will make sure thats what you get .

So they are going to change over the registration but that means I might not get it till Monday.

So seems like a good deal to me, worth waiting a few extra days for Also has the proper Fiat two tone wheels as well

Well I am assuming its the visibility pack as it has the electrochromatic mirror and I noticed that the bit where it is attached to the window is much bigger than usual so assume its also the rain sensor but only assuming. Didn't want to ask the sales man just in case lol. But yeah if it is the visibility pack then its £150 extra.

Re: Still No car - The latest Saga

Im still waiting to hear back on mine, should be rolling off the production line by now!

As i've ordered all the extras guess I wont be surprised by any unexpected free extras although the dealer is throwing in the TomTom for free!
