Hi Gang! Just took delivery of my new C-Max 1.6tdci titanium in Limelight. Was very happy with my C_max2 but this is very much a new car and my first thoughts, after 350 miles, are that its fantastic!! Am blown away instantly by the easy to use and very clever audio/phone set up. Love it! Ok, the colour is more lemon than lime, but hey, so easy to find in supermarket car parks!

Hi bb you have the same engine as mine - I'll be most interested to know what mpg you get from yours.I agree with you about the phone it really does work well.

Perhaps you can mention how the new model's turning circle compares with your old C Max.

I agree about the limelight - you'll never miss it! [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

Regards mpg, it arrive doing 42mpg, ive now got it up to 47mpg, but only donea few hundred miles. Am hoping that once it loosened up a bit, it will do more than 50mpg all the time, with 60+mpg on the motorways when i canleave it in 6th gear. The steering is much better than before, its electronic now and feels great, turning circle seems about the same but just feels so much better.

Hi there, Yes you can expect 50+ - we're getting 52-53 in mixed driving regularly after 3k miles.Enjoy!Alan
