Hi all,

I've recently passed my driving test and have been keen on the Ioniq for a while having learnt in a Toyota C-HR. It arrives at the weekend; lots of nervous excitement!

I'm looking forward to picking all your brains and getting involved in some of the discussions.

Wow, well done on your choice of first car, back in 1982 when I passed my test, coming from Luton where Vauxhall still employed almost half the men in the town, I got kudos from my mates for not having an old Viva or Chevette, I had a 12 year old Mk1 Ford Escort 1100E 2 door in 3 shades of metallic brown that had 2 replacement front wings on the back seat to replace the rotten ones in use. It had a collapsed drivers seat, 9" dished steering wheel and a distributor that was 100 degrees out of sync! Mind you, tyres were £11 each, a radiator was £20 and I think a proper steering wheel from a scrap yard cost me £2, because I took it off the donor car myself. They were the days!! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: Mind you, at least you won't loose all the skin off your knuckles trying to set the points and using a Gunson Timing Gun to set the timing properly..............every week!!

Enjoy.

I'll bet you weren't pushing 36 when you passed! I've had to wait until the robots-on-wheels era to make up for my incompetence.

Looks good - identical colour to mine. Must be the angle the photo was taken at but the shark fin ariel looks missing.

The ariel is indeed there. Given the current rain in Manchester it serves as an excellent warning to pedestrians/swimmers.

Thanks Kevin, loving it so far. The forum has already been a great source of learning, particularly last night when I began panicking on notice of a red flashing light on the dashboard!
