We did (as expected) have a 'whimper' of XC40s rather than a roar! Just myself and pjm007, nice chat though and a bit of a comparison . . . mainly wheels to be fair . .

My comment about the 'Sports Floor Mats' was based on the Spec/Price list I got from the dealer - on R Design, fourth down on the right:

Yes that description appears consistent from the 2017 price lists right through to the latest one for MY19. So probably we do have sports mats but they just don’t look very sporty! Needs a future meet up of at least one each of the Momentum, R-Design and Inscription varieties to compare “Floor Mats”, “Sports Floor Mats”, and “Luxury Floor Mats” perhaps?
It was an XC40 FE D4 AWD Auto - Bursting Blue/Charcoal/20". On the road since March 9th. Sold on August 20th. It was Polestarred. :)

I don't know, one of the most sophisticated auto-parking systems on the market, and one of you couldn't get it in the space properly! :lol:

Just messin', I'd leave a bit of extra 'courtesy' space too. :thumbsup:

No comment on which driver did what. Obviously the Lane Keeping Aid was not activated either!
