Hi everybody. Taking delivery of my new Aygo in 2 days time. Used to drive a Smart ForTwo (had 3 since 2009) but wanted more seats and I like the styling of the Aygo, the test drive was good and I also like the mechanical similarities with the C1 and 108. :)

Are you getting an automatic Aygo to replace the Smart. Or going back to manual?

I am sticking to the good 'ol fashioned clutch, though my left foot won't know what to do with it :D Although the automatic manual worked fine in the Smart, it wasn't the best. :o

In my opinion the Softouch automatic mode in a Smart is a lot better or should I say easier than a normal manual. But that's just my opinion having owned both.

Might be worth checking the tyre pressures when you get the chance, I wouldn't assume they are correct just because you got it new from a dealer.

You need to relax with tyre pressures man there is more in the world to concern yourself with!

One tyre did look a bit soft, so I checked them all and are now up at 33psi. My car is blue, though Toyota call it Cyan Splash! :wave:
