I am going to try and snapshot data in my first post on a regular(ish) basis to see trends. Perhaps once a month?
As well as averaging out the age demographic poll too?

That one wasn't my poll, and possibly involves too much math for me...haha.

Diesel for me... I hear you about not wanting to be stuck trying to move a second hand one in three or four years, which is why we are leasing the XC40

T4 FWD automatic is not listed...
The road is more important than the destination.

Correct.

But then it wasn’t specified in the Edition 4 pricelist. See first post for limitations.

I got the diesel through a lease too. When hybrids or whichever tech becomes more mainstream in a few years time I can just hand it back and move on.

Broadly percentage splits (diesel/petrol) seems to be holding fast so far.

Interesting. So no-one's ordered a T4? That's what I was initially set to order, as I felt I didn't need the extra performance and could save £1,500 or so. Ended up going for the T5 anyway because a) I wouldn't have a chance to drive a T4 for a while and didn't want to wait, and b) didn't want to spend the next few years driving around thinking "if only I'd gone for the T5..."
Cancelled after waiting 3 months to be told delivery will take 11 months.

Fo me it's the "T4", sorry all those who went for the "T5" but I just can't see the logic, the "T5" cost £1500 more than the "T4" and what do you get for this extra money, a 0 to 62mph time of 6.5 instead of 7.0, for me it's a wast of money, I invested the savings in a better spec. car.
What do you think?
