Lovely car, Joe. But....are you changing the plates? The rear one needs to be the larger size and those rusty screws need sorting:wink:

I used Demon Plates because they are good quality and you can get them to leave their logo off the bottom. They still put the legal stuff discretely in the bottom right corner so they're perfectly legal.

that has just been fitted as it has built in sensors and saved having to drill the bodywork so will take a chance on it i think. police only seem interested in motor bikes with small plates and loud exhausts from what i have seen and heard

well, took delivery of 36 today and love it already apart that is for having the handbrake foot operated which caused me great embarrassment as i was pushing on that while trying to get out of park when blocking the entrance to a car wash. after the PANIC:anguished: subsided i found this other brake pedal and all was well:flushed:

Glad you have fallen for the SC so quickly :wink:.....the foot operated handbrake is an acquired taste, I don't like it could make hillstarts embarrassing !
When I went to look at this car earlier in the year the backwards hillstart was tricky ...very close to the mini in front :scream:

Are you saying that if you're on a hill, and you have the car in drive it will roll back?

Always use both feet for a hill start on a steep hill. In a manual with foot operated parking brake you need three legs for a smooth start.
The Alphard has a foot operated parking brake but it's one push for on and a second for off. I imagine they don't do a manual transmission option.
 
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the car!
