    We're all being a bit hard on Duncan, but I suppose he's become used to the craic by now :D

    Be a sad day if we cant have a bit of humour especially with everything else that's going on

    And being from Yorkshire I strongly object to the claim that 5p extra would be too much,,,,,

    1p extra is far too much !

    I foresee him doing the even numbers next, though the x7 is a real contender for Porsche replacement!

    Duncan

    If you chose to drive to Edinburgh or you convince your uncle to drive it south for you, check for roadworks at Lofthouse Interchange where the M1 and M62 meet just outside Wakefield...the whole interchange is being closed for significant repair work.

    You would be best sticking to the A1 through West Yorks past Ferrybridge rather than M1 past Wakefield

    I think Ed@Cotswold gives us 10% normally. And occasionally some special offers.
    Thoroughly recommended, despite living 200 miles away delivery is normally within 48 hours

    Appreciate the banter chaps! ;)

    Sorry, not ignoring you lot, but work has been a bit crazy this week. Thank you to those who took the time to provide reviews and experiences. I’ll respond shortly on those.

    Good news is that the vehicle has been paid for in full and will be ready on Tuesday. As luck would have it, my Uncle is coming south anyway next week so will make the diversion via Edinburgh to collect it for us on Wednesday and drive down in convoy with his wife. Very excited at the new cars arrival - my girlfriend is over the moon with it already.

    Apparently there are some nice relaxing walks in Barnard Castle which is not too far of route for your uncle if he fancies a break

    As an aside the wifes petrol X1 is much happier on "premium" unleaded rather than standard....even she has noticed the difference

    I'm the biggest cynic when it comes to this sort of thing and being Yorkshire born and bred dont spend extra cash easily

    My G30 diesel seems to run the same no matter what I fill it with.

    The X1 definitely is happier on "premium /ultimate" 4 star, it runs smoother, pulls better and does about 2mpg more, even the wife will tell me to put the "better" petrol in !
