    Has anybody cllected their ex-motorpoint bls yet?

    Hi, I've got one of these BLS wagons on order with Motorpoint, and I was just wondering if anybody has collected theirs yet. If so, is everything as expected ?

    Re: Has anybody cllected their ex-motorpoint bls yet?

    I was supposed to collect mine last Weds from Peterborough. Got a phone call on the morning to tell me that it was at Stratstones, Birmingham awaiting a part!. Got on to the mechanic in charge and he told me that they were awaiting a special solder to fix a broken alarm wire. I was very close to cancelling the order but the mechanic provided a bit of confidence to wait for it.... still waiting but patience won't go past middle of this next week. Still a bit worried about warranty issues and panels in case I have a bump! How about you/ anyone else?

    Hi, I've been told that mine is in derby,waiting to be delivered to newport for my inspection. I'm not worried about warranty. Spoke to a guy at gm u.k and he said that the warranty would be honoured by stratstones,as long as the servicing is done somewhere. He did say that the body warranty would not apply though, because these cars have been standing for a while in kroymans stockyard. I didn't understand the logic of that one though.
    GM are going to continue Cadiilac in europe,so I,m guessing that panels should be available, or we will all have to drive very carefully.

    @ LORD ALVIS / Billy1958,
    I got mine from Truro Diesels. I got fantastic service including free delivery to my home,some 350 miles from them.If you have any probs with Motorpoint, try them. I've just heard they have a few more in stock The warranty book was not present in with the rest of the docs but it was posted to me within a week. As for panels. I have been told they are readily available should you need them. Heaven forbid!!
    Hope it all goes well for you.
    Regards,
    Kev.

    Thanks for the reassurances folks... will continue to wait.... Mines silver with black leather..... fancied the black with parchment leather but missus wasn't happy to keep interior carpets clean... oh well... anyway, will mine have the wood trim or aluminium trim... its a 180 hp auto wagon and built summer 2008..... yep... hanging arounf for 18 months isn't good for panels.. or anything else!

    Billy, I dont think its late. when I ordered I said to them that I'd like to get a 2010 reg. They said that there was a good chance, as the cars were not coming to the country til mid feb. Ive had no call from motorpoint yet,so I phoned them today and got told that I would be contacted next week,when the car is in the newport branch. Then the deal is that you inspect it and make sure your happy with everything.

    Sorry I'm a bit slow but router is up the wall.... nice sense of humour from Caddy owners... keep it up folks. The cars from M'point are pre registered... on 27th Jan. Thats the way m'point work... even tho we pay for the plates and tax so they're pre owned... thats the date they are registered so thats the date the warranty starts, they say 2 years so not to mislead consumers but 3 years warranty may be possible with Caddy. The mechanic told me the age/ build time as on the chassis... itall typical motorpoint stuff... had 3 from there in the past.

    Love the car ! would and very possible will have another.

    1 thing I dont like is the autobox is a bit slow !

    just come back from the Trafford Centre and it still gets loads of looks.

    Was once asked if that was the car James May drove in Top Gear

    sadly not that was the CTS-V but they knew it was a Caddy !

    There's a Saab fanatic in the pub who's more desperate to see this motor than I am.... hey Alvis, hasn't M'point sent you the paperwork with the reg number... oh, and if its not full spec then I'll walk but am expecting everything.... I'm now starting to get excited... for the first time... good ol Caddy owners forum!!!!

    Your going to love it.

    the nieghbours will be thinking that the hell !

    the BLS is great I've driven 2 different ones.
    I'd like to try one with the 16" wheels to see if it's a softer drive.

    We drove back from Disneyland Paris back to Manchester in a day and got back very relaxed !
