Couple more shots as I love this thing... it is a weird colour. We usually go for white...the others are white. Time for a change 🤓

Looks lovely, great colour now all you need is some sand and heavy snow and you can test out the traction control system on it :o ..The leather seating is very comfortable by the way :lol: Happy motoring

Had a chance to play around with (Car needs a name) and had a look at the software versions. Given I just took delivery yesterday, I would expect this to be up to date... but it wouldn't be the first time I had a new car with out of date software...

Can anyone tell me if this is latest releases:

Thanks very much Peter and the link.

I may have a go updating it myself...just a bit concerned about it going south! Anyone know if this is difficult job to do?

If not...got good ground's to go to dealer and request they do this foc..the car is only 2 days old.

On that thought...does the smeg update also include Bluetooth and display version? I notice display version is dated same as software version...same also for Bluetooth...

Technology aside, a quick appraisal.

1. The seats are just about as perfect as you can get. Roomy, super comfortable and the squab perfect length.
2. Mine is the 1.2 110 s/s. I don't know if it is just me but there is a very pleasing audible growl... maybe it's the rhythm of the 3cyl but it almost feels and sounds like a v6. Very nicely done Citroen.
3. Stop start. Now I thought s/s only came on when depressing the clutch. But I have found that after precisely 50s the engine will start itself (the traffic lights round my way are stupid and slow). I rtfm but could not see anywhere that said it would do that....anyone else notice the same.
4. It's only now got 98 miles on the clock...but fuel consumption is lower then I would expect on new engine at 35mpg.
5. Joy to drive...love it. Don't feel much body roll..but then again I am holding the wheel.
6. Mine has the new all weather tyres and I have noticed at 70 (ish) it has a tendency to waver slightly. Not a big amount but can certainly feel I am tweaking the wheel a bit.
7. Ride is really really comfortable with right amount if damping.

8. Love it 😁

Oh wow what a beauty. I love that colour, it's very uncommon.

Any ideas on what you're going to call it? Depends on whether you think it's male or female of course. Unless you go for a non gender name like Sandy or Curly.

My first cactus was called Spike (male) my current one is also male and called Urbert (from the reg).

It´s very easy to update, takes about 20min.
Download the file to your pc/mac, unzip the file transfer the file to a FAT32/MS-DOS usb stik (4-16gb stik) Turn on the car, plug in the usb, wait at bit (2-5min), it askes you if you want to update, say yes,
wait for 15-20min and it will start over when its don (this time don't update as its the same firmware, you can se it) unplug the usb and you are don :)

The car most be on ALLE the time its updating.
