Although the number - and frequency - of the issues has been extremely annoying, I don't really think there is justification for trying to reject the car. They are mostly pretty minor issues and the hassle involved with it just wouldn't be worth my time - if necessary I'd take a 20k hit and simply sell it.

The failed climate part arrived yesterday, and Ascot agreed to pay for it - and since it was due to go back for a service on the 16th, they're doing that now too. They believe the car should be ready by the weekend but will confirm today.

Hopefully, it will be improved......
