I'm going for a test drive tomorrow at 10:30. Will post my reactions.
I mainly want to see how the car is with the standard sport suspension. I have ordered mine with the JCW upgrade, but i want to see if i need anymore cornering performance or not.
Mine's due on Sept 1 but my dealer has invited me down for a drive in their demo today. Will go when I've finished my work. They have one customer who is picking up their car today - same body colour as mine tho not sure if I'll get to see it, he'll likely be long gone by the time I get there! I'll give my first impressions on this forum later.
Or maybe not ! Dealer let me know today that I can't pick up my car tomorrow as it hasn't actually arrived with them yet ! Talk about late notice. Apparently all of their JCWs are still marked as "in transit" and they don't actually know when the will arrive.
