How sad is that, especially when I have just followed a transporter full of facelifts down the motorway.

well it annoys me because otherwise the guy has been a complete legend. took me on the test drive of a lifetime on the CTR and ive been hooked on it since.

he rang up this morning offering me £2k off a black one which is very tempting.

but not having a clue about it ever being avaliable in white has annoyed me a little as im completely torn between black and white

Although I said I would rush to the nearest dealer to swap for a CW CTR, seeing it now I donít think I will . In your shoes though Ö.. GO for the CW CTR every time , not as bad as people think to keep clean (not as bad as black anyway) no visible stone chips (unless down to the metal) and it will stand out like nothing else

They do not want you to hold off on your purchase.
They want you money now.

I have to agree with the others and say the guy just wanted you to buy now and not wait. CW CTR is coming to a dealer near you

The dealer was talking rubbish and is trying to sell you a car now.

Don't buy it. £2000 off will be £4000 off come January.

He can't claim not to know, my dealer knew more than 6 weeks ago and told me they had a meeting, despite dealers on this site trying to deny it

Have to agree - they don't want you to wait.

I would go in with a picture of the new one with black grille inserts and say you want of those ASAP with all the other facelift improvements.

The CW will be available as a Limited Edition colour when the facelifts come through end of December / Early January.

This is definate.

Good luck with your choice
