Hi all, been following the ateca forum with interest over several weeks now and feel as lf I know a few of you quite well enough to join in . Order 1.4 excellence in midnight black on Nov 1st and received a build date mid December, so counting down the weeks now :D Still yet to see one on the road and thought I was going to be the only taff driving one around the vallies, but looks like their starting to arrive now and even Tell is bringing one across the bridge :lol: Saggy how about Rebecca the Area when you name her on Friday, think that's enough for now folks, nos dar. :roll:

Hi and Welcome Taffy :D

I'm glad the foolishness and banter didn't scare you away :)

Bore da if you don't read this till the morning ;)

Kindness71 actually suggested Rebecca before but much as I love it I have a niece called that and it could get confusing if I say I buffed Rebecca's headlights :shock:

I think I am going to go with Sally the Seat (you win Dougie)
The reason being Sally used to be used as nickname for Sara so it fits for 2 reasons

(My Sara is said like Sarah)

Those valleys and coastlines invite. I did see a lot of blue cars in Wales earlier in the year and thought I might have ordered the wrong colour, perhaps Lava Blue would have been more suiting. Welsh red seems out of fashion these days, just as well Saggy is not moving there. I've probably got a towny colour and the number plates will give away the area. The partner has a collection of Essex Police cones which we plan to bring so if there are any parking issues outside the property, out will come the Essex Police cones :). It will be Little England beyond the valleys where one will move to, let you work that out.

You do meet English people who live there saying "you can't park here". Anybody would think they still lived in, well a place in London where I use to get lippy people when I parked in front of councils houses when I couldn't get parked in the offices I was visiting, their little claimed bit of road outside the house that they don't own - they were not houses - tenements. So the escape from lippy people and overcrowding may not be achieved. I'm monitoring the roll out of Welsh rural broadband. Afraid I'm on 220 / 13 at the minute and desirable places broadband crawls although there are decent speeds coming along, but BT is so unreliable, TalkTalk give away your personal details... Virgin aren't there. Think PlusNet are the only contenders using OpenReach. I want Irish TV an Radio as well since I thought it was fun when I was a kid in Wales.

Sally the Seat isn't butch enough for the Ateca !. Mine is called by it's name, the Ateca :).

Dah. I had that issue with trying to lock the car at a petrol station to pay today, it wouldn't lock, no silly me the keys were in my coat pocket on the back seat.

It sounds like you may have picked up a cancelled order. I ordered at the end of August and don't expect delivery before mid February.

Give customer services another ring Fred as it looks like they have found some engines from somewhere. Just posted in other thread that mine has been brought forward about 3 months :lol:

I got mine ordered through work as a company car. Put the order in on 31st October. So either mine was already in stock and built or I have just been very lucky.
