Yes congrats! Just as a footnote, make sure you have the best ever warranty on the gearbox. They have been problematic in the past.

I didn't know there was problems with the new merc gearbox, engines maybe.

We were 'moored' up next to a couple who had just bought a 946, whilst we were in Scotland last year. He had just done the last forty miles with the auto box going up and down on its own, (at stupid times), like the flight of the bumble bee. The box had been replaced before he bought it, as the original was doing exactly the same thing. He thanked God for his all inclusive warranty.

Sounds like it might not have been the box and more likely a sensor or similar. Thanks for the positive feedback tho :)
