    I find the Fr suspension to be very good, get a good feel for the road. The 8inch touchscreen is really good, fast and crisp picture quality.

    Shame about your alcantara. I was going to get a sunroof but never really saw myself using it. I’ve got thr beats audio, and whilsf I didnt hear the orginal, for someone who is young and into house, the bass is definitely good. :D

    Coming from someone who has only ever had halogen to the LEDs on the ibiza I think it’s amazing. Used the full beam properly earlier, really lights up everything. I suppose if you have two cars and switch often with a car with brighter LEDs you’d notice a difference. But for someone like me they’re a must, I’ve never seen so much light in darkness. Not to mention the awesome aesthetics they add to the fronf.

    I’d add to that that the Ibiza’s ride on 18”wheels is much better than the heavier A3. Bumps and potholes are far less noticeable, and dealt with much better, and the handling is just as crisp, if not better. Where it falls slightly behind is road and general background noise, but it was less than half the price so I can forgive it that :) And it’s no noisier than our fabric roofed BMW 2 series convertible!

    Ours is also a DG18xxx. Johnson’s Liverpool by any chance? Who was your sales guy. Lee sorted our ours; he did a brilliant job :)

    The orange looks great - it’s a real shame the bi-colour 17” wheels aren’t available on the FR; I reckon they’d really suit that colour :)

    No mine was Seat in Crewe :)! Strange how it's the same!

    I love the orange so glad I chose it! The sales guy didn't even know that the FR was available in eclipse orange, he had to check with his manager! It had only just been announced when I ordered back in November :) I'm definitely going to buy some wheels for it!

    So I collected my Ibiza FR 95 today... it was a long 3 hours wait at the dealers as VW/Seat finance were on a serious back log due to the recent bad weather... me and another chap from Glasgow collecting his Ibiza got talking..... not sure if he is a member on here?

    So I drove the car 22 miles back home and spent a good amount of time sat in the car messing with everything. I will list the pros and cons of the car from my perspective...

    Pros

    1. the alcantara seats are very nice, really lift the quality of the interior IMO.

    2. The LED headlights are fantastic, very bright indeed and I am comparing them to Mercedes E Class LED headlights!

    3. the 8" screen is fantastic, very crisp and clear. Best screen I have seen to date.

    4. Overall a lovely car to drive.

    5. Paintwork is stunning in the right light.


    Cons

    1. The ride is slighty firmer than I had hoped but I am sure it's just a matter of getting used to it.

    2. Quite a bit of tyre noise coming into the cabin, the tyres are Nexen which I thought were cheapo tyres but they might be alright.

    3. It annoys me that the side mirrors dont fold in unless you keep the lock button held down.

    4. The Desire Red paintwork is much darker in real life, maybe I spent too long looking at pictures online that show it in the Spanish sunshine!

    5. Air re-circulation doesnt operate on all air direction modes[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks amazing... the Alcantara and red stitched pseudo leather seats do really lift the interior :)

    That’s something that you can change - there's an OBDEleven code thread on here if you wanted to do that.

    Also enjoy the car! I’m loving mine so far

    Interesting that you got those tryers. Mine came with bridgestone ones, don’t seem cheap.
    The air recirculating, could you tell us more about that? I havent seen any problems with mine, and I’m using the dual zone controls so it’s electric

    Hmmmmm, thats strange you got Bridgestone! Maybe as mine is the 95bhp model with 17" they only need a certain requirment of tyre :confused:

    I have the manual climate control but after checking the manual it's correct... when the air distribution is in defrost mode re-circulation is automatically turned off... never noticed that on other cars before.

    An update on this, having (a) cleaned the headlights now I know they don’t have washers and (b) driven on some properly dark roads... main beam is not as bad as I thought at first; still subjectively not as bright as an Audi, Merc or BMW, and with a less clearly defined beam pattern. But it’s much better than my initial impressions!
