That's missing the point, sometimes the journey itself can be enjoyable. But that's less often the case and it's more often the case that it's transactional as you describe.
I do apologise and now feel so guilty, especially since in those days, there were no speed cameras, ANPR or unmarked police cars so speed limits wereSeems rather selfish. Roads are not really for entertainment and driving like you are on top gear should be discouraged.
I’m with you but like others, I suggest to wait and get the full picture before ordering.Hi guys,
What do those interested think the best way to get one of the first deliveries of the Nissan Ariya is?
Do you think it will be highly sought after like the Kia e-Niro was at first launch?
Any hints and tips to get on one at launch?
I'm impressed with this "built to be an EV from the ground up" car from the information available, and think I would definitely look to reserve one as soon as I can. I reckon due to decent range this could become the main family car. I think the "entry level" Ariya 63 KWH will suit our family needs, but if money were no object the e-4orce 87 KWH Performance model would be my choice. While 4x4 would be great in snow, my current Leaf drives OK in snow (probably due to in part to the battery weight)
I've expressed interest on the Nissan UK site via the register interest page. We currently have a Nissan Leaf (30 kWh) bought from brand new from a Nissan main dealer, but I doubt there will be any special preferences for existing owners, but will be asking anyway (as a loyal Nissan customer ).
Only slight disappointment is that this one is not UK built but personally I reckon Brexit put paid to that (hopefully if the UK sort out out a battery factory there may be more UK built Nissans to choose in future - the new model Leaf is just not compelling enough for me).

Surprised there is not more discussion on this forum about this car.

I really thought you were joking, as was I in my reply!Maybe I was a bit harsh on boy racers. My early driving experience were driving a 28 Yr old Austin A35 van up an down the A12 (when it was all concrete) Getting to 60 in that was all the excitement I needed and since then my main driving priority has been comfort. So if the Ariya is as comfortable as the Leaf, or better, it should be my next car.
Yeah, stop going out and having fun it your cars you lot.Seems rather selfish. Roads are not really for entertainment and driving like you are on top gear should be discouraged.
If Tesla or any other car with autopilot could negotiate the North Circular without incident I might be impressed.
Your punishment for S.O.H. failiure is to read every word of the OP's on this thread.Some sense of humour failures there. We all have different preferences when choosing cars and I am happy to tell others what mine are. The Ariya should suit me fine and I hope it lives up to my expectations.
As for driving behaviours, however you choose to drive, it is understood that we should obey the law and follow the Highway Code. If there are laws relating to sandcastles I would expect these to be followed too.
Just ask the finance company for a settlement figure, pay it, hand the car back and then start from scratch with the Skoda.I've been looking for the Ariya to arrive, but the spec of the Skoda Enyaq looks better to me, which will leave me with the problem of exiting the Nissan PCP on the Leaf (2 years into a 3 year contract) to switch to Skoda. Ideas welcome.
Is that likely to give a better outcome than me settling the PCP and then selling the Leaf, after 2 years into a 3 year contract? (Cue: how long is a piece of string?)Just ask the finance company for a settlement figure, pay it, hand the car back and then start from scratch with the Skoda.
I agree. If you see a PCP to conclusion worth seeing the market value of your vehicle. I had a 5 series that was worth slightly more that the final payment to buy so bought it from BMW and then sold to a private buyer for more (settling the finance with BMW with some of the balance paid me for the car).Depends on how much it will cost you - i.e how much equity you have invested in it (eg from a big deposit)
Depending on used prices, when my pcp is up or I decide to settle early, I might well buy the car from RCI and then see if this gives me a better trade in deal.
