Thank you...

The dealer said that they would ring as soon as it arrived as neither I nor they have seen Lava Blue.
They rang at lunchtime today saying that it arrived yesterday and was now in the workshop...

Will post pictures ... and, if it is as good as the Leon we hired in Spain, will be well chuffed...

Thank you..
Sorry, but there may be a delay with the pictures..
I am due at the garage at 2 and the rain is forecast to start at 2...
Might be more of a test of the 4wd...

Must not forget the brolley, don't want to get her wet on our first day!

Don't forget to post those pics asap. I bet that 190 is a gem of a monster!
I really hope so as I want it to tow my caravan...
I hope the change from a 6 speed manual 138ps to a 7 speed dsg 190ps will be what I hope!

I am sure it will be worth the wait. From what I have seen and read, you should be very happy.

You wait, in 2017 it will be the caravan clubs towing car of the year. Not only the best but the quickest too I recon!

I hope that you are right.....
My current car is very good, I always try and tow at the speed limit for my rig so as not to upset the caravan haters, but my current car did struggle on lengthy uphill sections and, of course, changing gear resulted in yet more loss of momentum...
I am sorry, though, that this the first car out of my last 5 that is/was not assembled in the UK, but the reality is that they are now underpowered or very expensive. My current car has adaptive cruise which, once you have had it, you will never go back. Nissan offer this in the USA but not Europe. In any event the Ateca spec is far better for towing and its emissions are excellent....
Am I excited, you bet.. Downloaded the user manual and read it from cover to cover after placing the order - went to the dealer launch event and was able to help others with their questions.....
Got to get the first 1,000 miles on her so that I can tow......

Ok, it has been persistently raining here, so none of my own photos yet...
But, here is a link to the video from the dealer..

If it does not play because of flash problems, I also have an mp4...

I am speechless - the car is just awesome

They were brilliant...
Of all of the new cars that I have had, the way that I was treated was amazing. I would thoroughly recommend the dealer to anybody.

Congratulations! Have had ours for two weeks and still feel I haven't discovered all her functions. Your pictures show what an interesting colour Lava Blue is - it seems to change depending on whether it is in sunlight or shadow.
