After wanting an Adam for a while now, I have been made a good offer for my Part Ex so have placed my order!
In the end we spent 5 hours over 2 days at Vauxhall which I thought was quite a long time but obviously needed to make sure I knew what I wanted and wanted to get it 100% perfect for me!

So my 62 plate Chevy is being part exed for the Adam.
I took the Adam for a test drive, I drove a Slam and was surprised at how nippy it was and it handeled really well.
Just need to get use to driving a manual again as my Chevy was an Auto. So for this reason I made sure I tried out the hill assist in the Adam, and found that worked really well too! Overall I was very impressed hence why it assured me I wanted one!

As I have seen in other posts, I am dreading the long wait now.
They say about 8 weeks, so it will be a 64 plate which I don't mind as I don't like odd numbers anyways lol!
I am also hoping it comes before the new year so I can still get the last of the lifetime warranty!!!

I have already had 2 sleepless nights, so here's to 8 weeks more!

It's hard because it's like a blind date, I have spent big money on something I haven't seen! All I've seen is a small picture of it on the top of my order form so I can imagine when the day comes to picking it up, I might get a little emotional seeing her for the first time and just knowing that I designed that car from roof to wheel!

So I'm expecting a phone call tomorrow morning about the car and when to expect it etc so am very excited about that! I have also heard people on here being able to track the car themselves so I'm sure if I can do that I will be checking up on it every minute!

So excited!!!!

That is the same colour as the test car i drove . it looked amazing! great choice.

Did you get the rear spoiler. it really finishes off the look.

Speak to your dealer now and add it to your order as it is fitted and sprayed by the dealer when the car arrives with them. it cost me about an extra £100. so glad i did it.

The 1.2 isn't nippy at all, you need at least the 1.4 or the new 1.0l after owning the 1.2 for over 18 months!
Also the MPG on the 1.2 isn't all they claim, get about 40mpg combined.

I'm not too bothered really about it being nippy, I'm sure it will be fine for me :)

Our Corsa is the 1.2 engine and no way do we get 60mpg.. On a slow cruise (50/60mph) might get mid 50s but in reality at 70 mph it's more like high 40's.

The new 1.0 litre turbo is expected to get around 60 so don't see how the older 1.2s could get near that
