EXCELLENT NEWS KEITH......ABOUT TIME TOO....it seemed like Christmas was getting here earlier than your car!!:shock:

The spec. sounds ace.....SWWBO was on about the additional pods/clocks the other day, and they would look good as well as being functional...so may look at aftermarket purchase of these for SUZIE:cool:

I really hope that their promise is kept and we can chinwag about your new VIVIENE on Friday night!!!:D:D:D:cool:

After all the hype V17ENE is still in Aberdeen:(:(

Story so Far

Set off into collect V17ENE and it was just a blizzard, it's only 48 mile but it took us 1.5hrs, when i arrived 5:30pm the sales guy said won't be long just doing another handover, (So i had a coffee).

At 5:55pm it was my turn (Excited or what), He went into the office to get tax on the car, about 2 mins later he came out of the office as white as a sheet, the insurance papers they had received were dated 9am 20/11/04, i then phoned the insurance company and asked if they could fax a copy through with the date 19/11/04 and a time of 6pm. They messed me about so much that we missed the deadline for taxing the car. The tax disc's must be issued before 6pm as the machine will not accept any details after 6pm (Security reasons).

So to round it off i,ve seen the car, i've sat in the car, i've started the car, but i was not allowed to drive the car.

I then set off home arriving home at 9pm, 5 hrs for nothing.

I am now collecting the car at 11am today.

I will say that Smart of Aberdeen tried everything in their powers to get me the car, but there was nothing else to try, They also offered to deliver it tonite, (Sorry to Gian the salesman as i am sure you can imagine the air was a very dark blue)

When i got home take what the insurance company got, i have told them the insurance will be cancelled on monday morning.

Oh well thats it life's a Bitch

Keith

PS By the way Vivien was happy also:shock::shock:

After my drive back From Aberdeen yesterday the car was absolutly filthy so no pictures

Got up this morning washed her went inside for my chamois and guess what when i got out again it's a blizzard.

Waited for 1/2 hr to see what the weather was going to do, no use the car has a blanket of snow again:(:(:(

Apart from not getting pictures the car is really good, i have set the doors to lock when you move away, put the child locks on the rear doors, played with the computer (that is something else), looked high and low for the telephone installation and can't find it anywhere, fitted velour mats, fitted rubber mats over these they fit very well and look the biz, I like the armrest / cup holder nice touch, my wife likes the height adjustment on the drivers seat, (She's only small, bless her). Too many toys to play with in one night

Anyway i will get pictures ASAP
