    Question Noobie, possibly taking delivery on Saturday...

    Stumbled upon this forum while doing some research on the Evoque!

    Looking at a 2012 demonstrator that looks to be fully loaded- Dynamic premium pkg and the adaptive Magna-ride options plus a bunch of other stuff but I must admit that the option packages seem a little confusing. Trading in a Nissan Altima coupe and the price is great considering we are actually upside-down in the Nissan so a decent price plus the discount on the demo more than offsets the negative equity.

    Anyway, really impressed with the vehicle; This will actually be a birthday present for my wife whose birthday is Saturday the 17th! Good Lord I hope she likes it...

    Wondering about long-term opinions especially for the 1st year (2012). Anything I should insist on prior to delivery? I didn't think to check the build date but the VIN ends in 2822...


    Looking forward to learning a lot here and hopefully contributing!

    Took the plunge and took delivery of our new Mauritius blue Dynamic 5 door!

    The wife loves it (damn good thing since it was for her birthday) and I continue to be quite impressed with it. I must admit that I was a little surprised with a couple of missing features like remote start and auto-locking doors on exit but neither are a deal breaker. For all I know, it may well have both and I just haven't figured it out yet!

    Looking forward to learning a lot here!

    Congrats. That color is a killer. You're going to love the MagnaRide suspension. Best in the world.

    Have had the chance to put a few miles on it and have to say I am quite pleased! Took a trip up to Foxboro MA a couple of weeks ago (about 2 hours away) and the ride was excellent but the NAV took us on a wild goose chase but attributed to operator error. Who knew there was more than one Patriot's Way in Foxboro...

    Anyway, the only complaints I have is that I am still having trouble dialing in the seat position. I was surprised that the control pedals are not adjustable and the front of the driver's seat does not tilt on ours- option is only in the Prestige package and not the Dynamic?! I also think the included "premium" carpet floor mats are laughable at any price point and border on insulting for a vehicle that stickers well north of $50k. Replaced them with a set of MAXpider 3D fitted mats that are perfect! Last item was the right rear tail-light assembly- the black "trim" was cracking around the edges but quickly replaced under warranty.

    We are very surprised with the overall performance and comfort of the Evoque- it is a definate keeper at this point!
