I bought my car in September without even sitting in one. I had a year old C43 estate that I had only put 2k on in a year so it was wasted sat on my drive. I just wanted to downsize so there wasn't so much money in a car sat there doing nothing. I had a deposit on an ex demo cla (yet another merc) but the dealer was messing me about, I started looking online and at different things. I have had loads of estates so fancied a change but still something that would take a couple of dogs if need be. Found a bmw dealer in Sunderland with about 4 pre reg X2models (the crossovers that people who haven't driven one hate) with only 12 miles on the clock with over a 30% discount. Had it delivered, c43 part exd and a five figure sum back into my savings. I absolutely love it and am already using it more than I did the c43. It wasn't a big deal to me not driving one before buying. It was a new car, I have had a bmw before so knew their gearboxes/engines were good. It's actually a smoother gearbox than the c43. I'm thrilled with it. If I hadn't have liked it, I hadn't lost as there was such a big discount on it. The part ex figure was showing more than I paid when I put it in wbac.

It looks very nice. I do like that special white and the roof sets it off. Hope its a cracking car. It certainly looks good

Welcome to the Peugeot club.

It is a good looking car. The pearlescent white and the panoramic roof make it. I'm sure the white will look even better in the sun.

I agree, it looks great.

Never been a massive fan of a lot of solid white cars, but I really do like the way pearlescent white cars sparkle - looks good in that picture, going to look amazing once you've detailed it and catch it in the sunlight.

We are home now, it drives really well. I do need to find a comfortable position, the clutch rest - even though it’s an auto isn’t in the best position. It’s clearly been looked after and a genuine reason for sale.

It’s had paint on the rear bumper and a smart repair on the osr bumper corner but it’s an 8 year old car. It was spotless inside, no dirt and freshly hoovered out.

It needs a service and I want to change the gearbox oil so I’ll get that done at work.more pictures to follow.
