Here is the checklist I had for my Avant:

ITs a good guide, but you may p**s them off if you really want to check everything. It was worth it though, because I found a slight scratch I wouldnt otherwise (which polished out), They hadnt debadged it, and there was a big gouge in the button on the handbrake.

It is soooo much easier to prove you didnt casue a problem if you find it while still on the forecourt.

Welcome Spiral! beerchug.gif

Another 1.8T cabrio driver, nice one! ECLIPSe.gif

I'm afraid my hand-over wasn't quite as well regulated, I hopped from foot to foot impatiently whilst the sales guy went through everything, then I hastely signed anything pushed in front of me, grabbed the keys, dropped the hood and roared off! cool.gif

Look forward to seeing some pics of the new beast. I very nearly went for black, but they had a Moro Blue TT in the showroom when I ordered and it was stunning so I went for that and am very pleased with it.

What spec did you go for?

Good luck with it, let us know how you get on! beerchug.gif
