So the new car arrived Friday - I opted for delivery to Brum rather than make the trek back to Arden Maidstone again. A wise move since the driver had a 5+ hour drive to get it here.
The service from Arden's on the whole has been really good. Honest dealing and they didn't try and hide behind things they weren't prepared to rectify. The vehicle had been reduced a £1000 the week before so left me little wiggle room to squeeze them - they have a profit to make after all.
They sorted some trim issues with the piano black trim replacing a couple of items and having a trim specialist polish out some of the finer scratches. Looks lovely inside.
Spec is high with DAB, pro nav, hifi loudspeaker, visibility package, heated memory seats, hi beam assist, ambient lighting, folding mirrors and sports auto box. A lovely place to be!
Prep on the car is overall good. Wheels have had a decent cosmetic refurb but need a full refurb before I am happy. Will wait until I need new rears which won't...
well i am nearing one year of ownership of the 5GT as the car tax renewal and the insurance renewal have both hit the mat this week
there has been much talk about increased premiums over the last couple of months so i was bracing myself for a shock but actually got a pleasant surprise, the annual premium has increased by £15.00 and if i renew online i get a £20.00 discount so saving a fiver over last years premium i can live with that and wont even bother looking around this year
