I hope not! She's been told this needs to last a while.

Nice looking car Chris - particularly like the colour and the wheels!

Somehow it still manages to look better and more Vauxhall like than the Megane : https://uk.images.search.yahoo.com/sear ... egane+2006

Easy to see the similarities though?
Cheers,
Dave

She likes it. She would have preferred the blue but the spec was more important as she wanted heated seats.

It is blue if you squint - honest! :lol: Heated seats are a definite necessity these days, the best thing is she likes it!

Its a nice car Rich, thanks.

The log book says its blue! It does have a very slight tint in it in the right light.

We went out in earlier for a run to check the lights at night etc.

Its a million times better than the mk4. Which I don't dislike. Shows you how things change and this is still 8 years old.

The heated seats thing is my fault. Every car I've had while I've known her has had them. So she's use to them and missed them in the mk4.

Though she would concede to preferring cloth seats. But they're standard leather in this model.

Not sure if your other half will be the same as me - once upon a time i didn't like leather seats in the car because of sliding on them, burning your legs/back when it's hot weather etc but now i love them. Hate leather furniture at home though, threw out a 3 seater leather sofa recently after trying in vain to give it away! It's still out the front if anyone wants it lol!
Cheers,
Dave
