I only ordered at the weekend and I'm already getting impatiently excited. How on earth am I supposed to keep calm. I have at least a month to go! Help! How did you all cope?
I've read every single one of the fault posts and I have absolutely no worries. Each car is different. I had a Vauxhall Astra that was an angel for the three years I had it, yet a colleague has had nothing but trouble with his. It's the luck of the draw.don't read all the various fault posts, you'll only wind yourself up & worry to death that your car will fall apart as soon as you drive it away. It's the equivalent of looking on the NHS direct website & convincing yourself you are dying when all you have is a cold.
It's a brand new chassis platform and a brand new drivetrain. there are teething problems as with any new product to market these days, and the internet just makes things seem ten times worse than they are. i'm not belittling anybody who is facing problems with their car, but don't assume every car has every problem described. the vast majority of cars produced are absolutely fine and issues are being addressed.
also try to resist the temptation of spec creep..
Oh man, you just described exactly what I've been doing for the past two weeks...10 weeks about for mine, just contribute to the forum,watch video's,contribute some more,then watch some more video's. Then download manual and read and read some more. Besides that just get on wi your life. But the day after you start going over the routine again lol.
Nowt you can do mate,just try n relax

I do wonder, though, what is "spec creep?"

I tried that, but my spec was locked in from the day after I made my order because the dealer made it High Priority to avoid losing any money on my Part-Ex.Spec creep = the temptation to repeatedly ring the dealer to add on more options that youve read about and decided you cant live without
Haha, I'll see if I can find them. I love those walkabout videos, you see all or most of the car. You also learn things you didn't find out yourself.lol
the video about the sd walkaround and drive,i made a few comments on them two vids
