Hi

Picking up a new AT tomorrow (Red/white/blue) with DCT.

140 mile to collect and same back :crying:

Couldn't get a test ride so its a bit of a roll of the dice.

Hope its as good as the reviews say

Thanks all

Hi edgey, you said yesterday, that you are buying without a test ride, well so did I.
What I want to know today, is how big is that smile on your face :)

Hi all

Well i have picked it up. Very cold on the way down but warmer coming back

Initial thoughts

Comfortable
DCT way better than the original version i tried on the old NC
Good pick up in top
Strong acceleration from the lights in standard D
Tall seat (on tip toes) for my 5' 10" frame
Touring screen OK
Very stable at Motorway speeds
Easy to filter on
Light steering
Roomy
Look good :)
Averaged 46 mpg

Cheers
