“This little baby is now 24 hours old. We picked her up from the Drift Bridge Garage in Epsom where our salesperson Desiree was a bit of a star. I think she was as excited as we were. I still haven't seen another one on the road, but apparently sales have picked up and other customers are on the waiting list, we were lucky to have been early enough to order one which was ready to drive away just a week later. My husband Andre and I took it for a real christening drive, through Kent to Hastings and then Rye, giving it a good test on motorway and country roads. I've also taken it to show off to my running club and I reckon a few other people were impressed by what seems like a bargain. VW’s complimentary one-week’s insurance was a bonus as that gives me time to get sorted. As their insurance quote is looking quite favourable, I think that means no Alexander the meerkat for us!
"Thanks for the hot tip I don’t think I would have considered a city car thinking it would be too small for both Mr M's comfort as a passenger or zippy enough for motorway driving, but it is just fine and dandy for both. For such a small car the interior is very roomy and she handles really well on the road, even on a busy M25.”
