Texy,

Nice choice - I'm awaiting CR/W for Jan. Like the wheels - i've ordered same - though we seem to have a minority choice. What was your thinking? - I went for the reported better ride and more easily available tyres.;

Like the PW but I'm too\ lazy to keep it clean, hence CR!

PS - where's the location - not Ashby castle is it?

My choice for the wheels was purely look.
Then again, I didn't want to pay for the 17inchers, although they are the
best looking, imho.
I believe the S-lites are also the lightest wheel??? (16inch).

I hear what you are saying about the colour - I drive it from the dealers in Reading
to home, here in Newbury - 15 miles - and it was filthy !
Still the best colour combo, and pretty rare too - the dealer said the last
pepper white they sold was last July, and they sell 30 a month.
The castle is Donnington Castle, near Newbury.
Cheers,

Texy

Now thats a good looking car... :cool: :cool: I like the choice your rims. I also like the driving lights. The color seams not to be popular here in the states either. But I like being different.... :D
I have to comment on the countryside.... WoW thats something. Don't think I could take the weather but the the view is beautiful.

Love the colour! I have ordered HB/W but still keep wondering if I should go for Pepper White - got another month or so to decide!

Did you not go for the Chilli Pack or did they give you a discount on the Chilli pack if you don't have the 17" wheels? Just wondering!!

Hope you are enjoying the car!

Hey Texy, top choice :D :D PW is the BEST colour IMHO (but then I am slightly biased...) Don't worry about running in time. I used to do about 9k miles a year, done 6k in the S since I picked it up in mid-June - it's unbelievably good fun! Enjoy.
