Arrived after 4 months.....

All Finally arrived in NZ after four months (T5 R-Design, Pano roof, split boot electric fold down seats, Pilot assist, heated seats etc and yes headlamp washers....)

Re: Poll: Lead times ( from order till delivery)

Due to pick the car up on the 15th - R Design T5 Osmium Grey - one thing to bear in mind - if you think you may need a heated steering wheel (for cold climates) tick that box (NZ$450 = @ STG $225). It can be retrofitted but would cost 5X as much - @ $2,400 NZ = STG 1,200!! - (will get gloves instead...

Decided not to go ahead, never had it before on any car so no need now :)

Ceramic Dura Seal paint protection worth it?

Ceramic Dura Seal paint protection, worth it for a new XC40

Has anyone taken this dealer option for exterior/interior. I have always assumed it was just a money spinner for the dealer?

I may be wrong of course, is it worth doing?

Cost around £450 equivalent for interior/exterior

Re: Poll: Lead times ( from order till delivery)

Ordered a R Design T5 almost exactly four months ago, arrives on the ship to NZ today!

Needs to be prepped before we get the car.

Long wait overall, hopefully will be worth it 😄

Re: What do you think of the new Q3?

It is unquestionably a better looking and more modern car than the current Q3, one cannot argue against that. It will be very interesting to see the comparison reviews when they arrive, it clearly is designed to match the XC40 - let's see if it does. The comments around spec will probably ring true,...
