I've not seen a single one where I live and that's with having a Seat authorised dealership up the road. I'm looking forward to being the first! I guess the smaler size class SUVs are more popular as I've not seen many of the Tarracos rivals about either; just one Skoda Kodiak and zero Peugeot 5008. I've been on the lookout for them as well because these were the shortlisted cars before I decided on the Tarraco.

same shortlist as mine plus 3008, Santa Fe, Sorrento, Superb Estate but the Tarraco won as it had 0% finance at the point of ordering and it's the nicest car.

Apart from cars in showrooms and demonstrators I have still only seen one Tarraco on the road, in the Manchester suburbs on 1st June. Quite enjoying the exclusivity for the present, while singing its virtues to those who ask, (and several have).
I'm still fooled by Atecas though, especially those approaching. The rear view is easier, with 'TARRACO' being on the left hand side of the boot, and 'ATECA' in the middle.

I test drove the Stinger, cracking car but too small for us unfortunately, the seats were unbelievably comfy and the thing goes (the 3.3 litre V6)

The above, where is this? Same colour as mine, they have the EU plates, my dealer put the old school ones one, I guess the EU plates won't be needed very soon!

This is South London and it's the colour I chose too. I was really pleased to see the green tone under the sun. Before this I've only seen it indoors at Westfield under low light where it resembled grey.

Excelent, we're in SW London and I als bought mine from Westfield
Where are you going to service yours?
I found a couple of specialists not charging main dealer prices, I need to find out if they do the manufacturer service schedule and genuine part bits for the warranty.

I actually test drove in Westfield and then I sat down with them all ready to place the order. Then I started asking this exact question about servicing and whether they did warranty too. I didn't realise they were purely retail. I thought it would be ideal to deal with the main Seat people for servicing + warranty and not some potential dodgy dealers. So after they told me they only sell, I asked them what's the benefit of me buying from them and the guy just said they have first access to national stock but dark camouflage needs to be ordered anyway. There was a grey available pretty much immediately but I wanted the camouflage. So then I did more price comparisons and a dealer in Bromley gave me a better price so I just went with them.

I took the PCP so I have the 2 years service too. So far I've only done a search of Seat dealers/garages from their website so I was planning to take it to a site in Croydon which is closer than Bromley for me for the first 2 years. And then I'd have to search for a cheaper place that follows the same schedule as a main dealer. Guildford is 20 miles from me while Harrow/Brent is about 12 miles. So audivwsc might work if they are much cheaper than a seat garage. Thanks for the heads up 👍

King hams Seat in Croydon by any chance?

I phoned them up about a part that broke and the guy answering was very cocky and said why did I buy the Tarraco that the Ateca was better etc. That he's never seen a Tarraco yet that no one was buying them etc. I wasn't really impressed by that one encounter anyway.

The outfit in Harrow nevertheless ordered the part straight away and booked me in for today actually. Heir prices are much cheaper than main dealers.

I will change my oil after 5/6 k miles there and see how they behave.

Quick update on audiscw
They repaired the car within 1.5 hours took the bumper off and put the plastic back in.
Got a discount as well. Hourly rate is £60 so 50% cheaper than SEAT
Excellent!
