I was in your neck of the woods Saturday funny enough.

Don't forget to post your pictures and your option list.

I'm afraid my option list doesn't make good reading. It's bog standard silver with red leather seats. I lease my cars so any other options cost a fortune. Maybe next time I will be able to stretch to some extra niceties.

It doesn't matter what you have as an option list. We are not elitist here.

So post away with you specs and pictures. I am quite sure we would love to read what you got and look at the pictures too.

My only musts were Nav and rear view camera. I got heated seats (no regrets in winter) and enhanced connectivity (that I don't use, I prefer my phones be stupid) only because they happened to be on the car, and the extra cost didn't break the budget. The sunroof is nice, but that's standard in the US.

After 2 years with the Qashqai that has just about everything you could imagine I don't actually think I will miss the helicopter view cameras (front and rear sensors are just fine) the lane departure warning (I always had that turned off), autonomous braking (not needed it yet (fingers crossed)), side hazard detection (I use my mirrors). In fact I think that the only thing I will miss is the speed limit detector, I'll just have to pay a little more attention.

What am I getting to compensate? How's about 258bhp (twice the power of the Qashqai), x drive stabilty and assurance, M Sport looks, super-smooth 8 speed gearbox (must be a revelation in comparison to the Qashqai's CVT gearbox with it's initial reluctance to move away) and German engineering and build quality.

I think I come out the winner overall.

Yes you got a lot more with your Qashqai no doubt but you had already weighed up what you get in exchange good job

Wait till you see the room in the rear seats area and the front seating position.....oh and wait till you hit the accelerator.....

My previous car was a 2011 Porsche Cayenne 3.0 Diesel. It was a great car, but I was looking for something more dynamic, good for long trips.

I'm counting too

Yours should be the new LCI version.

I don't think it will be the new model. The lease cost has jumped up by 183 a month from when I ordered mine so I am certain mine will be the last of the old model to come off the production line. That's a lot of dosh for LED headlights.

To be fair I thought so too , I was only trying to fill you with hope

You did place your order before BMW updated their web site to incorporate the new LCI model.

But don't worry your car will still fantastic.

So, I'm not doing a count-down but I have just ordered some car mats online. Black, with red trim to match the red seats.
