Hi - As some of you will know.. i got rid of my E60 525d Msport back in November last year, many years and miles of ownership - see thread - (http://www.bmwlander.co.uk/index.php?threads/the-e60-has-gone-to-a-new-home.523/) Back in March last year I ordered a C-Class merc (C350e) with the intention of that replacing the E60, however after that getting delayed after delay i got brassed off and cancelled the Merc order at the start of Nov. (see thread http://www.bmwlander.co.uk/index.php?threads/new-car-ordered-to-replace-e60-merc.48/ ) Anyway... after looking around, my main requirement for a new car was space (more so with the 2 young kiddies) a decent enough spec to tick the boxes and something cheaper than the merc. The family requirements didn't really suite the 280bhp, tiny boot, small cabin C-class in fairness, so the aim here was a 2 to 4 year family solution of cars perfect for these duties, camping trips, school runs, UK and EU road trips... I spent a lot of time looking around the 3 series (too small) the 5 series (F10/11) which i liked but the shape has been knocking around a while now and just didn't really give me that spark if im honest. I think started to extend the search to VW, Audi, Ford, Lexus, etc etc and then made the choice, ordering the car on the 11th November 2015. After ordering the "above" car for me, and visiting the showroom a few times, the wife spotted something in there also which she really liked and having done the man maths etc, the spec v price was a perfect match. It was time then to sit back and wait for BOTH cars to arrive !!! First of all.... He is the Mrs car which arrived last month. (could of delayed it for a 16 plate, but felt no need.) Skoda Rapid Spaceback SE Sport - 1.4TDI Key spec, Sat Nav, Voice Control, DAB, Climate,LED Running Lights, Multi Function Wheel. Sport Seats, Glass pano roof, And then on Monday..... My new car arrived.... New Skoda Superb Combi. 2.0TDI in SE Business trim. I was so surprised how good the spec and build quality of the cars were when i demoed them and to be honest the Skoda brand is now very close to VW if not on a par to the Passat (way above Seat) in the VAG rankings. So, if you fancy a change... dont skip these 2.... So far.... VERY impressed with both cars and look forward to getting some miles on them !
