Oh gowd! I'm hoping they have the sense to know that at the garage. They are a 4x4 specialist after all.

Pics to follow shortly.

Well, pick up was officially at 2pm. However in my haste, I arrived at 1.30pm.

15 mins paperwork and the keys were handed over. 5 Mins show around by the salesman, and I was off.

Got home, had a cuppa, watched the neighbours curtains twitching, it was fab.

Took it to the tyre centre, they had it up on jacks, when all wheels were off, I had a crippling fear it would topple off and disaster would strike. It didnt :-)

The drive home was way more pleasant than i expected. I don't know what all the fuss is about.

Anyways, i'll add much more info, when i drive her more, but for now, here are the pics.

Collection time
