The white looks great! Much better than on the configurator I reckon.

Great pictures. Car looks brilliant in white.
Just out of interest how's the engine and manual box? When I drove one I thought it was excellent but some other people have been not so sure.
Also what's the real world mpg?

The engine: My previous car had only 130 PS so it's a step up anyway. In eco mode it's pretty gentle. In dynamic mode it feels pretty sprightly. I like the manual change. Precise. Not always quick but quick enough.

Real world mpg:

Day before yesterday: 68 miles of mixed motorway and dual carriageway linked by roundabouts (brake down to 20, accelerate back up to 70) --- average speed 55 -- consumption 61 mpg.

Sunday: Mixed suburbia and narrow B roads across country -- average speed 30 -- consumption 59 mpg

Friday last week: 40miles of busy motorway with 2-3 miles of stop start at the beginning and the end -- average speed 48 -- consumption 69 mpg

I should add that the beauty of inControl Remote is that I can sit here at my desk and just read all these figures from my phone.
