    Default Picking up my MPS tomorrow

    Another one for WA, Hi all.

    Have been gathering info on this site for a while now, which has led me to purchasing a MPS, probably wonít sleep much tonight in anticipation just like a kid at xmas.

    Hiya Didge, welcome and congrats!!

    Boy I remember that feeling only too well from a couple of months back when I got my new MPS. Were you looking at the MPS all along or did you investigate some other options before settling on the "right" choice!?

    So which version did you go for , what colour and what sold you on it in the end?

    Don't forget, as an OzMPS member, you are required by law to publish pics of your new car within 24hrs of taking ownership. Cheers

    It's a luxury red one, my wife thinks I am going through a midlife crisis

    I was comparing with the WRX and in the end, the quality finish plus drivability as a daily driver clinched the deal.

    You chose the best car and it's Red .... Lastest wheels mag they have a Gold star cars section and name the best 3 cars and it's broken down to Warranty/Service/Fuel/Retain Value/ Safety/Drive under Compact performance under $70,000 and the MPS come 3rd out of the Mini Cooper JCW and the Renaultsport Clio 197.... Small quote with the MPS: If you're looking for cheap acceleration,look no farther then the MPS3..

    I know all too well what this wait is like. I ordered last week of June, before they were released - 2 months later I got mine! Make sure you post up some pix

    I slept surprisingly well last night, only dreamt of the car a couple of times.
    Itís a Gen 2 and I live SOR, and as for track days I think I will get used to the car first before scaring myself at the track, thanks for the offer though.

    It am looking forwards to catch up on one of the cruises in the new year.
