Thanks T-route, or is it Trout-e? Would you believe I have just had an e-mail from the Dealer (not been forthcoming with useful delivery info in the past) to say the transport driver has rung and he is an hour away!! No? - neither will I until I see it for myself. Fingers crossed - I'll update post when it is on my drive. Thanks again. (fyi - mine will be same model as yours but white)
Today's history which prompted me to start this post:-
I rang the garage 08:55 - no response to message for salesman to ring me.
I 'live chatted' (text) to Dacia UK. (I have not been contacted by Customer Services as I was told I would be within 2 hrs).
I emailed Dacia Romania - no response.
I posted 'where is my Duster' etc on Facebook Dacia.co.uk (since removed by me).

I think, from what has transpired since vehicle appearing this pm, that all this has been about money/profit. I sold my p/x myself due to a very low bid by the garage (like £2.5k below what it sold for). I can't help thinking that each deal/available vehicle has been about maximizing profit potential and I have been shuffled back and back due to strong product interest??? - food for thought??? Anyway, it's now paid for and I collect Friday - yippee - I hope.
Well - finally picked up my 2014 spec Duster Laureate dCi 110 4 x 2 on Saturday morning, and I must say it exceeds expectations. I rides, handles and pulls/stops extremely well and the features for the money are excellent. I think it will prove to be a good choice and at the moment I am very happy with it - long may it continue. (ps - must have been a coincidence after all !?!?!?)
I picked up my 4x4 Ambiance today. It feels very different to the Laureate 4x2, a more solid presence on the road which I think is down to the additional weight of the diff and the spare wheel etc. The boot space difference is noticable and there are a few bits that will need to be 'improved' but all in all I like the white, after the silvery silver silver silver.
Vespasian - I commented to the other (better?) half yesterday that my new vehicle did not roll like the one I test drove last October and put it down to the additional Electronic Suspension and Steering Controls now fitted. It would be interesting for others' views methinks.
