Just ordered my HSE Luxury with a few other bits, see below.

Have been given an estimated delivery date of 28th Septmber; just wondering how close it will be to that date.

Pre-traded my Toyota Kluger to lock in trade-in value, so have taken a big step down and now driving a 2010 Hyundai Getz 1.4L. Will be a great step up though once the DS arrives.

Wasn't room room to negotiate price, most dealers wouldn't budge.

Hi Sydrider, Welcome to the forums. Yes the vehicles are very popular and hence very difficult to negotiate, probably partly due to your trade as well. Well done on ordering the orange with black pack! I think it will look great!

Delivery delays are the norm thus far so don't put too much stock in dates the dealer gives you.

Cheers
Oz.

P.S. rider of what?

I ordered in mid April and should get mine next week. But that's a 15-spec so maybe there are longer delays on the new engine.

I'm pleased to say given the time available I decided NOT to trade-in, I just sold my Astra Twin Top for £1k3 more than "we rip you off for any car" said. And I'm hoping to do a LOT better than "Book" for my Disco2 as it has good reasons to attract more cash, such as a new engine and refurbed gearbox. Fingers crossed. But that won't go on the market until the DS arrives - a chap has to drive *something*, and the Defender's a bit primitive for turning up in customer's carparks! :)

Haha nice - I bet that keeps people on their toes!
I've got an NC700S for commuting and a CBR1000RR for track, the latter being the primary reason I need the tow pack on the new DS :)

The BM is Fantastic down the motorway, from cars I normally see a dab on the brakes (guilty thoughts about speed), then they indicate left and pull out of my way!!

I've got fluros on the bike and I often wear them as well, so if they're stupid and drive a tin top they will make the wrong assumption.

Only problem is it's a bit wide for lane filtering, still got the crash bars on.

Search YouTube sydriderau and there are a few short movies.
