Last weekend (2 March 2013) we flew down to Sydney to collect our Elgrand from Edward Lee's. Graeme had got the vehicle ready and it was well present on the forecourt waiting to go. All the work was completed and they even replaced the battery.
We completed the paperwork with no hassles. Graeme put some fuel in for us and showed us the route out to the Pacific Hwy. We had our 2 yo grandson with us and he just loves being high up and being able to see so much more than from a car.
We drove in luxury back to Brisbane on the Sunday but just wanted to keep cruising.
I did alot of research for people movers available in Australia and believe me there is nothing that can come close the the high spec of the Elgrand. It is in near showroom condition with low mileage, the internal trim quality is to limousine standard and the features are oresome. What might appear little things are very useful, such as the soft self latching doors and the keyless entry system. You do not need to take the key out of your pocket to unlock the doors or to start the engine. This vehicle is so full of features.
The engine is powerful so you do not feel like you are driving a large vehicle, we left most cars standing at lights and overtaking is safer as it takes off as soon as you plant the pedal!
The grandson loves the remote controls, the fold down monitor and electric sunroof.
During the week I connected an old laptop to the video system and had the monitors working in no time, watching Topgear Uk. Just need to configure computer output to NTIS video format, set car video to av and radio to aux. Family were most impressed.
This weekend I will fit a digital tv decoder and have TV, USB, DVD and recorded tv programs as well. Also sourced an Iphone AV ouput lead from JAYCAR, this will allow me to stream all features of my mobile through the monitors including music, video and gps.
Phil and team, thanks for selling this vehicle to us but don't sell too many as we feel we are in a secret club of Elgrand owners at the moment!
