Welcome. I am another satisfied Xcellence owner. I didn't find the extra money for the Lux was worth it for me (YMMV). I did not want the larger alloys as they give a harsher ride. I did not need the rear view camera. There is nothing wrong with the extra specification just that I spent their cost on non car things that give me more pleasure.

How do you find the white pearl dash? At first I put up with it but now I like it. The car feels less dark inside although I am no longer actively aware of the colour.

Welcome. I have the same model and colour but with the petrol engine. Xcellence version suits me just fine and after 6 months I still really enjoy driving it. A better ride than my previous Audi, slightly more economical, more roomy, quieter but not quite so powerful. Can't fault it apart from the lack of rear seat lighting and the ridiculously short fitted mudflaps that don't do anything to prevent the mud being deposited, especially at the rear.

Stuart, I have no idea what it might be (loose cable?). Try asking on the technical threads as some members may not read the Introductions one.

Hi Dunkelmann my wife was a bit off put by the white pearl dashboard on our initial viewing now we don’t even notice it I think it brightens up the dash.

Thanks for reply, i sorted it, the passenger window was slightly open, the noise was really strange which was why it had me confused.

Thanks for the reply, the passenger window was about 1mm off fully closed but the noise only happened when going on the motorway 70mph, really strange noise which is why it never crossed my mind, funny really
