    Hi guys,

    Thought I'd just introduce myself ;)

    Picking up my Exeo from the dealer by the end of this week :thumbup:

    It's a brand-new (pre-registered) '59 plate, 2.0 TDi (143) Saloon in Urano Grey :D

    Will get some pics up as soon as I can!

    Cheers,
    Andy

    :yes:

    Was too good an offer to refuse ;)

    Especially considering the part-ex value I was offered on the Altea, and the other benefits over the Altea:

    Longlife servicing (every 20k intead of evry 10k)
    3-years Warranty (instead of none!)
    No MOT for 3-years
    Slightly better MPG due to it being CR instead of PD

    and all the 'toys' it's got:

    In-built Bluetooth
    Coolbox in glovebox
    USB/Aux-in Stereo
    Auto-lights
    Auto-dimming mirror
    Auto-wipers
    18" alloys
    Sports suspension
    Bigger boot (although a smaller 'hatch')
    Bigger fuel tank (70L instead of 50L) means I can go to Devon and back on a single tank :D
    Sports seats

    plus many more :lol:

    :thumbup:

    Thanks Darryl :D

    I forgot to take the signed forms to work with me this morning, so I couldn't take them into the bank to get the cash! Dooh!

    Will remember to take them with me tomorrow! ;)

    Insurance is all sorted, for an extra £4/month (with breakdown cover taken off the policy to!) ;)

    Getting excited now.....

    Only problem is that the only chance I'm going to get to drive it on Friday is on the way home from work.... My wife is out all evening, so I've got to stay in and baby-sit, sorry I mean look after my daughter ;)

    Will be out and about in it at the weekend though..... hopefully the weather will be nice so I can get some good piccies to keep you lot happy :lol:

    :D :D :D

    :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Only driven it 1mile back from the dealers to work, but I'm well chuffed :D

    It's gone down very well with the lads at work to, which is always a good guide as to how 'good' a car is! ;)

    Forgot my camera in the rush to leave home this morning, so pics will have to wait until tonight/tomorrow I'm afraid! :lol:

    Congrats Andy! Glad you're happy with the grey urinal.
    Looking forward to seeing the pictures, I'm a closet Exeo fan, especially ones with 18'' wheels! :)
    If I could fit one in my garage I think I'd have got one myself.
