After an excited phone call with confirmation of stock, our new Stepway would be ready for collection just 8 days later.

Bloody Hell I thought when I said "yes" I guess I'm going to Scotland. With a few phone calls and checks on the internet the tickets were booked for an overnight national express coach.

Preparing for a 450 mile return trip without any backup I took a high visibility coat, a hydraulic bottle jack, money and phone/charger.

The trip to Scotland with a changeover at London was arduous starting at 6.30pm I eventually ended my journey in Glasgow at 7.18am. Sprinting down to the train station I only had 12 minutes to catch the 7.30am train to Ayr.

I remember Scotland vaguely from being a "wee boy" and tried to take in the scenery which was racing past.

Arriving in Ayr I took in the local café having breakfast before the dealership sent a vehicle to collect me from the train station.

I owe huge thanks to Richard, James and Gregor of the 'Parks Motor Group' in Ayr who promptly and swiftly dealt with my questions during the purchase.

The drive back was a 457 mile marathon with one 30 minute break and took 9hrs 45 minutes.

Here are a few pictures below.

Congratulations on your new car, I may even try Parks for the other half's Duster.

Killer breakfast by the way - just what I needed to see at 7am in the morning and starving! LOL!

Any ideas what the café is called as I'm in and out of Ayr quite regularly?

Enjoy it, you deserve it after such an adventure. :) I thought the Ambience didn't had the silver trim on the roof bars and body colored mirrors. BTW, I think the Stepway was clearly parked illegally (on the disabled spot). :lol:

An epic journey!

This must take the honour as the furthest distance travelled to collect a Dacia!
........and possibly the shortest run-in time - halfway there in just one day. ;)
