More photos to follow.

Manual box feels fantastic to me but I'm coming from an XC90 auto, and the last manual I drove was a Renault Espace :ymsick:, it's pretty smooth and the gearing feels well spaced. Was there anything specific you were interested in?

Power is phenomenal, comes through immediately and just keeps coming. Not like a hot hatch 'kick in the back' , more a firm & sustained shove.

Yes I got the electric seats upgrade FOC and front parking sensors that I wasn't expecting.

Thanks for the feedback. Have read press comments saying manual isn't great and threads on here about the knob feeling flimsy (ahem!) and someone hitting their hand off the controls behind the gearstick so interested in your thoughts. I'd like approx 50 photos of the interior please! Thanks in advance

A few more photos, not quote the 200 requested. Apols.

Been out for a proper play, don't listen to anyone knocking the manual gearbox it's fantastic (and I didn't ever hit the air con controls by accident). Dynamic mode is a lot of fun. :ymparty: B-) :ymblushing: :-bd
