Wow guys - i have been dreaming about this for ages and now I have my very own bit of magic.

The guys at Middlehurst (Chris, Andy and Jo) were fantastic.

You all know that the car is awesome!:thumbsup:
The sat nav system is very good - it even has speed camera alerts.
There is a USB socket in the arm rest which I was told that I can plug my ipod in to.

All i need do now is get some miles on it to get through the optimisation service - boy is it difficult to keep this baby under 3500 revs, let alone 70mph!

One question, I have the reverse sensors but when I reverse I hear one beeping from the dash which is to tell me that I am in reverse and one beeping from the sensors. Is there a way of turning of the warning beeper that is telling me that I am reversing. It is quite annoying.

Thanks,

Congrats on the new toy. Agreed, it is a big car but to make it beep like a Scania is indeed a bit over the top.;)

I decided against the nissan tracker and went for a Tracker Horizon to keep the insurers (and my wallet) happy.

I already have a pogo-alert for the cameras which is much the best system that I have seen.

Should I have had them install anything else? I played with the idea of a y-pipe but thought I should leave it for now.

The ipod integration (through the standard ipod usb cable) is brilliant - I had the BMW system on my cooper S clubman but the Nissan version is so much easier.

At some stage I would like to find out how to update the sat nav with a road and camera update. I drove down the A1 of Saturday and it did not know that the roundabouts had been taken out last year!

As for the colour combo - it looks great. I thought about being very wide and getting raccoon.co.uk to do a full chrome vinyl cover but for £3k and only lasting 18 months it doesn't seem worth it.

Maybe if i do the gumball 1 day!:thumbsup:

Paul who i and others are using posted a thread on DetailingWorld.

Ultimate Shine - Ultimate Detail - Detailing World

It's a very detailed explanation but having met Paul yesterday, it all stacks up as he is someone who is very passionate about his work. Tell him i sent you :D (jk - i realise you are in London, but he's over an hour from me and worth the journey)

Cheers

Ian

Orange peel

Blimey !

I thought it was only the Germans who could no longer paint a car .....

Sadly with water based paints this is a trait that will continue, however looking around a nissan showroom on the other cars I could not see a patch of orange peel on any ?

I had a black GTR on order originally, but when I saw the orange peel on the one at Marshall's, I quickly changed my order to DMG. My wife has a black X5, and the difference between the paint finish is very noticeable.
