Wish you luck? You're off to pick up your new Troopy wagon - what more do you want, you lucky man?! Please tell me you got a colour other than white.

Oh I'm sorry :) Personally, I'm still trying to decide if I want the grey one or dark blue, or should that be "Graphite" or "Midnight Blue"?! The "Graphite" looks better in the piccies on the website but I haven't been able to find a proper pic of the blue one. I think the solid (non-metallic) paints are generally more robust... hey, I'd be happy with either I think!

Aaah - I have it now! Oh this car is sweet. Already put about 100Km on the clock, and I am very happy with it.

And yes - it is not white... it is French Vanilla! Mais oui - ma cherie, mon bonbon! Vive la France! Vive la Revolution!

A few things to notice:
*) the rearview is a bit of a pain - it's like looking through a key-hole.
*) people keep tailgating something fierce! I'm doing the speed-limit and I can't see the bonnet at all for the loser behind me. Oh well - his loss. Maybe I should put one of those marital aids on my tow-bar and a small-font sticker reading "If you can read this, your radiator's f@#$d!"

Other than that.... "She drives like a steakhouse, but handles like a bistro!"

Well... I need to get off my behind and post-and-link them at some point in time.

So far, it drives very very nicely. Surprisingly enough - I seem to be doing about 10.5l/100Km - just driving to and from work while my sedan is getting fixed. I'm doing about 100Km/day roundtrip and about half of it is suburban traffic.

Initially it started going through 11.2l/100Km, but after about 1000Km - it dropped to 10.5l.

Thanks to everyone who replied to this thread. :)
