Yeah - the TD4's are meant to be coming in the next few weeks - A dealer told me that the TD4's are expected between 14 and 25th November or something like that.

That includes the Demo TD4's.

I test drove a TD4 today in Coffs Harbour. The sales guy did mention though that there are very few low spec Evoques in the country.

Would be interested in your thoughts of the engine, ie response and performance

RE: Carpoint - Available Cars

I thought the engine was great, I just didn't like it with the auto gearbox. Down low in first gear it was lacking and slow off the mark from a standing start. It felt like you really needed to give it a bootful to merge into traffic etc. which made the engine sound harsh. I didn't want to thrash it as it is a car that has already been sold and they are using for test drives. Once you were moving along it was great and plenty of pick up. For that reason I want the manual but the sales guy said he was unaware of any manuals in the country (???).

RE: Carpoint - Available Cars

Test drove another TD4 auto at another dealer today and glad I did. It had great pickup from standing start and great acceleration, it felt like a completely different car to the first one I drove. I wouldn't have a clue why though, unless one was more worn in than the other. Loved it and had plenty of power for my needs so I have changed my mind back to an auto again!

Their's been talk of a recent software upgrade to the Automatic, in the thread "Gearbox Issues" post #2, here's the link ... http://babyrr.com/forum/Thread-Gearbox-Issues , so i'm wondering if this latest one you drove, had the upgrade which made the difference in pickup.

RE: Carpoint - Available Cars

Carpoint has a few more cars available - but so expensive some of them.

The pure's on there are already about $86 - $90k. Thats a lot of options for a car that is usually driveaway for about $60k-$62k for an automatic.
