Pine Grey Finally Arrived - Damaged!

Post by hdasmith » Tue Nov 06, 2018 3:25 pm

Well, it's been a very long wait, but it's finally arrived. Looked really smart on the back of the delivery vehicle - until I got to the back and noticed some bad scratches and dent on the boot lid. Someone had clearly opened the boot onto something else. Supplying dealership is now trying to work with a local dealer to get it repaired ASAP. Could be interesting. Unfortunately, I didn't get the choice of which dealer supplied.

Otherwise, looks really smart though, very happy!

Thank you. Definitely was disappointing, but at least it doesn’t have to go back, and I carry on with an asthmatic cee’d! I’ve calmed down now, and can enjoy it.

That's a bummer hda I hope it gets sorted quickly and correctly for you, it does look a real brute of a car though.
Mine is due on the 8th November but is being driven across from Peterborough to Worcestershire which makes me a little nervous.

I did think about having it come via a trailer but decided against it so my fingers are well and truly crossed for its safe arrival.

Congrats on the new car! Looks great... and welcome to the D3 manual club!! Sorry to hear about the scratches. Still loving mine and mpg still really good. Only niggles I've had are broken boot catch (mentioned elsewhere on here) and a rattle coming from panel by right leg which is getting sorted tomorrow at 3k check. Only other little thing I've found (and only applies to manual) is the drink holder when x 2 drinks in place – tendency for them to be in the way when changing gear. I took the inlay out and flipped round so stagger height is opposite way round which is better (for me anyway!). Enjoy!

Thanks for the suggestions ste12, I’ll do that with the cup holder.

I do need to find a better position for my clutch foot when changing gear a lot, holding it above the pedal is quite tiring, but otherwise love the car.

First long journey today, managed 61mpg for the return! Really pleased with that.
