I had to have the manual to get the low tax bracket with it being a company car :( also have to put up with 17" wheels as it can't be specced with bigger on this engine. I can see an upgrade happening when I receive the car

I went for the 163 Prestige Automatic in Ammonite Grey with the latte interior.

Options wise, I added:
- Power mirrors as it's quite wide for its class and our underground car park at work is not
- Front sensors and reversing camera (see above)
- Spare wheel - having torn a sidewall on a Welsh mountain road before, I wouldn't be without one
- Meridian stereo
- Lumbar adjustment
- Split-fold rear seat (even my Audi TT has this, and has been very useful on occasion)

Ran out of budget at that point, but would have added xenons next. My commute is mostly lit, so not essential but do make the car look better.
