Just in case any one is interested I have just added UK to the end of my name - Used to be just Hampshire_Cruiser. Seems that the majority of guys in here are from across the Atlantic and might think that I was 'New Hampshire' - A lovely place I understand, but I think it's important that people can see at a glance where I am from, espaecially as spec seems to vary between US and UK.
Sorry for the ramble :)

Out of interest, what is the spec of yours, HCUK?

I've ordered a 2.4 Multitronic in Amulet Red.
Didn't order the Sports Pack as I found the ride too firm. I'm a bit of a good ride freak and put that at the top of my list along with build quality. Have heard some people say the non sport model ride is 'floaty' - I say good just what I like. I'm not into chucking cars into corners and screeching away from the lights.
Also added the following:
3 Spoke leather wheel with Multitronic controls
Upgraded tyres to 215/55/16
CD Multichanger in glovebox
Black hood with grey headlining
My Dealer tells me it's all built and should arrive here very early January. Not taking delivery until March 1st, but hoping I can take a look at it in their compound/storage area wherever that maybe :)
What spec is yours ?

I am also the proud owner of a manual 2.4 V6, which I have owned since 2nd September. Although it could not keep up with a hot hatch, it performs fine above 3000rpm especially in higher gears. Although thats not the reason I bought it, I bought it to cruise.

excellent choice of colours, same as mine :)
not sure about your choice of 16" wheels though, ive just bought myseld a new 18" set as the 17" i feel are too small
