    As with my Fiesta I intend to film, datalog, chart, and just generally drive the sh*t out of this. 5 more sleeps to go!

    Does the video include spreadsheets and driving gloves? If not, I'm out.

    Good colour choice.

    Can tell you're excited for the car just by your breathing, thought it was Darth Vader filming for a while.

    Nice car though, got it booked in for a new car detail to get it all sealed? That'd be the first thing id do if I got a new car.

    I honestly have no words. (With regards the video)

    Nice car anyway, they're quite underwhelming inside though I always think.

    You must be a salesmans worst nightmare. I'd go as far to say if I was selling you a car I'd probably tell you to jog on:tongueout:

    I'm assuming they have a coolant issue? I've owned 9 or 10 cars and never checked coolant once :astonished:

    I haven't watched more than a few seconds, but you spent time setting up a camera to film you using a camera to film a sticker on the windscreen.
    I'm literally lost for words.

    Lol, funny replies in this thread. Mileage comment was something else.

    Enjoy it when the time comes, I guess waiting for a car for 7 months which you are planning to keep for 10 years, I expect you get quite attached.

    You don't sound anything like I thought you would. Everyone has a Yorkshire accent in my head on this Forum.

    Nice car, nice colour and good call on the sunroof. Looking forward to the next video. It was so bad it was actually good.

    I thought they came with recaro buckets as standard? I'm assuming they're an optional extra then?
