    My delivery agent kindly send me some pics of the X sitting in the compound awaiting PDI etc.

    He said they have noticed a misalignment on the drivers side trim so are ordering a replacement but I may nip round there and have a good look over in any event.

    Alignment doesn't look to bad at all and my SC isn't all that rushed so they will spend a lot of time going over the car.

    Yup! What P85_DA said! While I wasn't convinced with the Midnight Silver Metallic when we ordered ours, I'm liking it more and more with the few delivery picture bonanza postings here recently.

    :)

    How long will you have to wait to take delivery?

    Ugh.... you’re making me question my last decision before ordering of cream or white interior with the midnight silver.

    Good luck and I hope you enjoy your X!!

    Cream with carbon fiber is the best of both worlds!

    Thanks guys, I hope to pick it up next week, just a couple of things to sort out.

    I went today to have a good look round and took plenty pics. I didn't get inside though. One alloy wheel is scuffed which they will replace for a new one, alignment seems to be 100% spot on from the nose to the rear of the FWD, then things need a little tweaking. Bootlid seems tight agains the qtr panel chrome trim, should it have a consistent gap all the way? I've seen varied on other cars. The FWD sits proud on one side, only by about 1mm, will this cause a wind rustle?

    Couldn't check the interior or seals but will do once it has been through PDI and before collection.

    I also found 3 paint defects, nothing can be done to either without a respray so i'll have to live with them.

    Here are the pics what do you think?

    Quick question on the paint which is stunning in the sun, does it have Xirallic particles?

    How bad was the scuffed rim? Asking just to get a gauge of what people's perception of perfection is.

    Yeah, ok. That's totally unacceptable. Someone curbed that quite well.

    Could it be a US / Europe thing?

    Final assembly of European cars is in Tilburg NED.

    I prefer Michelin anyway. The chap at the SC said they use both.

    Thanks for the pics. Any chance you have a pic of the floorboard with the black carpet and how it blends together?

    Great looking car. I have the same cream and oak interior, but with white exterior. Love it. Very classy.

    But, I think there is a problem with your car. The steering wheel is on the wrong side.:)

    Yes this is something they're looking to sort. The car is fresh from assembly in Holland without any intervention from the SC.

    I asked to look at it in a raw state. This side needs a bit of tweaking, they've ordered a new rear window and trim peice and will sort the FWD trim to align with the wheel arch.

    Overall its fairly minor and simple adjustments, hopefully. I haven't opened the FWD yet!
