Whereabouts in N London are you, if you don't mind my asking? I was born over that way, but I now live south of the river (shock, horror! ).
My partner lives in Barnet, so I regularly have the joy of driving round to her via the N Circular, having a few tussles with Mercs and beamers on the way!!
Incidentally, you'll enjoy that 200PS you're getting under the bonnet - the car goes like sh*t off a shovel, even without the sport button!

Not at all, I live in Enfield. The A406 is horrible isn't it?
I'm looking forward to it immensely! I spoke to the dealer on Monday and learnt that it had been ordered the same day. Just a shame about the long wait (13 weeks now), I'm hoping it will come sooner.

You're right about the A406! After I've negotiated the Blackwall Tunnel (and wondered whether my lights are going to switch on and off quickly enough see elsewhere on the forum about that! ), I take the A13 to the Redbridge Roundabout and then get off at Green Lanes and drive through to Barnet from there. In that way, I avoid the worst of the N Circular (ie, all the traffic lights, etc). Incidentally, I love the way all you N London guys stick to the speed limit and never overtake on the inside (not! ).
As for the wait, I suppose I was pretty lucky insofar as I ordered mine mid Feb and it was delivered end of Apr, which was slightly earlier than originally scheduled.
Anyway, keep us posted on delivery progress and, as soon as you've run the car in, I'll give you a race from Enfield to Redbridge!!
