Hi Weedy,
I'm in no hurry so I don't mind hanging. I won't order one until they've been on the production line for 3 months anyway, to give them a chance to iron out any production issues.
I was invited to Coventry back in August to preview the new 508. I have to say, I was bowled over by it. I wasn't allowed to drive it but wow!, what a lovely job they've made of it, especially the interior. I know the trend at this time is for faux SUVs but I think this may change the thinking for some people. The prospect of a 226hp petrol engine coupled to the newer dual clutch 8 speed Auto is very intriguing
The biggest criticism I had was the fact the roof tapered down so anyone tall, sitting in the back may well be compromised by it. Other than that, I'm looking forward to seeing the SW in the flesh, hopefully the rear seats will have ample headroom.

Iíve seen the new SW at Truscottís of Barnstaple, call them to book your 48 hour test drive.
(My 2013 508 SW spent the first three years of its life being serviced at Truscottís.)
It looked nice, by the way, somehow smaller than my SW. I want one, fortunately I donít need one!
