Finally popped into the local Dealers and test drove the 2008, it was the 92 Allure Diesel Model and have to say what a fantastic drive it is...so smooth and surprisingly quick.

So have now ordered the 115Bhp Stop/Start Diesel Allure, Cielo Roof, Park Assist, Sat Nav, Wind deflectors, boot protector and boot mat.

With carpet mats thrown in for free.

Managed to get a great price in the end so really pleased.

Have been told to expect delivery either end of December beginning of January but more likely the latter as they are waiting for over 20 to come as it is.

Now the waiting game begins

Great news, a warm welcome to the waiting room
,

There is tea, coffee to the left and a comfy seat on your right.

Not many of us have left the waiting room so there is plenty of people to keep you company

Also forgot to say it wasn't the typical test drive either...normally down here you go in to test drive..give driving license etc then normally they give you the keys and say off ya go come back in less than an hour.

This time one of the experienced drivers drove out of the dealership and just put his foot down....doing 90 up a dual carriageway to show how it handles...then slammed brakes on to show the speed adaptive steering (or whatever it's called lol), then said right i'll show you how it handles on roundabouts at speed so went round a roundabout 3 times doing 34mph....very impressive.

Then said right your turn to test now...got out on the dual carriage way again to which he promptly said right now floor it and see how it performs....have to say it was the responsiveness of the car that sold it for me...so comfortable...feels big yet nimble round corners etc...roll on January now.

Just thought I would email Peugeot Customer Services and this is the reply I received : -









The vehicle has a planed build date of December with up to a 3 month handover date, so latest you would receive the vehicle would be in March, This is due to high demand for the 2008 crossover.

As I'm half way out the waiting room, I promise I'll be popping in regularly to visit.

Al, shut your ears. So we decided to get paint protection put onto the car, we went with Diamondbrite, main reason, it had a lifetime guarantee of you owning the car and was obviously cheaper than the dealership. Don't think I/we could do a good job of waxing the car as well as Al has done his.

Anyways, we cannot take the car in for it's protection until Monday morning, hubby has put his foot down and we are not collecting the car until Sunday (so we/I don't get it messy before the paint protection is put on)
.

So we won't have the new addition to our family until then. So in the meantime, we get to say goodbye to our trusty old car Nya, so sad changing cars.

WHAT!!!

.....and do they do all the door shuts?.......The good thing is that Nimbus Grey won't show the little black fly squashes on the front like Bianca White does......but with all my waxing they just wipe away without a trace.....

Good things come to those that wait.


I won't get mine until Monday or Tuesday now as well.
