My FR in black - finally here!!

Post by russmw » Fri May 31, 2019 7:47 pm

After waiting what feels ages my Arona turned up today. Went for the 1.0 115 FR in black and really happy with it. Only out for local driving today but will be stretching it's legs this week!

russmw. You may want to obscure your number plate. The world is full of crooks!

Had the car coming up for a week as really happy with it. Got a fabric armrest on order as it's one of the few things I miss from my previous car but other than that (and the fact I can reach the roof to polish it) it's all good.

Drove from Oxford to luton and back today which averaged 57mpg over the complete journey, not complaining about that.

The engineer in me is saying drive it calmly for the first 600 miles and I know there's some debate on if this is needed or not but then start pushing the revs a bit harder.

No regrets on ordering the car :-)

Looks really smart, but black is a bugger to keep looking good!

Thanks - I'm quite obsessive when it comes to cleaning my cars so it doesn't get a chance to stay dirty for long :-D

yeah, looks tremendous and the bonus is that you don't see too many black Aronas on the road (don't see that many Aronas at all actually, which amazes me as I think it's a great car, but I suppose I am bound to biased).

I am pretty lazy but decided I would try and keep my car clean and without spending a fortune on it. I bought 4 x 1L Williams wash and Wax on Amazon or EBay for £20 as I saw it got decent reviews. I have used it twice now and the car comes up very nicely indeed. It takes me about half an hour and that is certainly not rushing it. There are many products on the market like this and I wouldn't have a clue which one is best but I just went with the reviews and I am very happy with the results.

Having had my car for just over two weeks now, I'm equally amazed that there aren't more on the road seeing as how great the car is to drive. I've only seen 3 others so far - perhaps that will change, who knows!?

Good tip about the cleaning 👍
