Hi

My names Steve and I just ordered an ateca excellence 1.4 with heated window screen in rodium grey. Loved the car on the test drive, really responsive and whilst a little firm on the suspension it wasn't intrusive. Looking forward to a build date but probably a long wait.

I am from West Sussex so might see some of you around.

Cheers

Steve

Welcome on board, Steve ! Another one :D

Hoping to get some pics up of our this weekend; you won't be disappointed and Rodium Grey is a good choice in my (biased) opinion :lol:

Yes I love the rodium grey, so nearly chose the white but keeping it clean would drive me nuts :). Would love to see your pics of the grey!

What's the heated seats like? Do they heat up quickly?

Within a minute or two they're at full tilt, I'd say :)

Hi Steve, and welcome! What dealership are you using? I'm in Horsham and bought through Lifestyle in Brighton which is now Part of the Hendy group.

It'll be good to have another member of the Sussex contingency. That makes two of us now! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I bought through Crawley euro seat, they gave me a better deal than Brighton lifestyle. Will keep my eye out for you :)

Welcome Steve, great choice of car, was going for quasqai, (bad reviews), then along came the Kajar (same family as Nissan) also looked at Kia sportage, until set eyes on Areca and knew it was what I wanted. Delivery date was mid January.

I guess I might get Crawley to maintain the car as it's miles nearer. Do you live in Crawley?

Hi Steve,

Welcome from another fairly new member!

I am also about to order an Ateca in Rodium Grey, and wondered if you have received your anticipated build date yet?

Presumably Seat will confirm this with your dealer, or are you expecting to receive it directly from them?

How quickly did others get theirs?

I haven't got my build date yet, the order only went in on Monday. What's the usual expected time from order to receive a build date? Good to hear another person gone for the grey :)
