Hi all,

New member here, thought I would introduce my self. Im James from the UK. I have just picked up a 2010 Montego blue 320d SE convertible with Oyster Dakota leather, just running 24000 miles. I came from a Jaguar XK convertible, it was getting too expensive to run. I must say I'm thrilled with the 320d, its a manual, lovely gear change feel too, very impressed with the acceleration and how quiet the engine is. Here are some photos from getting back tonight, I shall try and get some better ones tomorrow. I love finding out little things with cars, when driving back at night I love the LED ambient lighting in the doors (i seem easily pleased...)

Thanks guys.

2moor, Really pleased with the manual box. I was a bit worried coming from an automatic but I've really enjoyed it today with the drive back. the stop/start will take some getting used too..

Thanks for the welcomes

abgs97, it was good to see, love little touches like that, also the LED strips inside the car too.

Klov335. I think this later 181hp 2 litre unit does 0-60 in 7.5 seconds. (could 8 being the convertible)

Coming from a 300hp 4.2 litre V8 that did 0-60 in 5.6 seconds I'm still quite impressed with this with the economy.
