    New Aygo, First Impressions/Questions...

    I have an X play MMT 2017, so it isn't up to date with the current style Aygo. I connect my phone through bluetooth for answering any calls and playing music which is great. I still tend to use my phone for browsing music choice before setting off. I've found that even with driving in E I have got to know what gear Rosie is likely to be in so if I know I'm going downhill and I know she's probably in 4th gear I do sometimes override with the paddle to change down to 3rd as it helps with speed control without using the brakes too much. The rev counter helps a lot with knowing what gear she is in, the lower the revs the higher the gear.

    If the unthinkable happens

    I doubt a brand new battery would be dead after only two months?

    What MP3 player do you use?

    Have you made sure you turn up to full volume on the iphone? When I play mine its always turned up to full volume then I adjust with the volume on the car radio.

    New Aygo Coming!

    I've got the X shift X play, bought 2017. I personally love the way the car drives and having driven mk1 and mk2 aygo I'm used to the noisy 3 cylinder engine. I think it adds to the charm, and I've often pulled away from lights leaving other traffic at a standstill, and she's responsive when accelerating away from roundabouts. If you drive in rush hour the lack of clutch to control would be a bonus for you I think. I have given manual mode a go with the flappy paddles and it does work well although I don't think its true manual mode as the aygo still changes down automatically.

    Which gear do you use ??

    As said by Frostyballs, I treat her more like a manual rather than an automatic apart from driving in E. If they're designed to be overridden then it won't harm the transmission.

    Which gear do you use ??

    My x shift likes to stay in a lower gear going up hills like 3rd or 4th depending on the gradient but she changes up as soon as she can. I override it sometimes going downhill as I find that engine braking is better than using the brakes for speed control.

    Feels sluggish

    How often do you do motorway trips? Mine has ticked over 16 k mileage in just over a year (yep long trips to work) and has always felt spirited and ready to go. Mixture of motorway and urban driving.

    Tyres - second generation Aygo

    I found this when looking for all weather tyres for my aygo, limited choice as its not a standard size.

    Memory Lane

    I'm only 33 so have been driving about 11 years now. First car was my dad's Honda Jazz which was written off in a non fault accident in 2012. It had done 80k mileage due to dad using it for work then I nabbed it for dog agility shows.

    Director's Cost Price Sale..

    yeah I've got a similar deal but I've just spent a lot at the dentist so I'm not ready to swap with a deposit. I've only had Rosie a year anyway.
  13. I received an offer through the post today to have an early swap with a 0% interest deal but I've only had Rosie just over a year. I'm going to build up more money for the deposit first. They were offering £1500 deposit towards it though.
  14. Yes staying with the same dealer I think will get you better deals because they want you to stay with them. I'm not bothered really, I think running a new car on a three year basis with only one MOT to worry about is good for me.
  15. With the 2018 facelift and updated tech on the x play model, I would be renewing my pcp again. I save up enough money for a deposit, last time I only had to pay £500.
