Managed to sign up yesterday, somehow sailed straight through the process.

Had my Eclipse Cross just over a month, absolutely lovely car to drive and thankfully a decent upgrade to the MG ZS I had previously.

A warm welcome Cymro, good to have you on board. Good you found it easy to join, as I nearly gave up when trying to join.
Hope you enjoy the site and of course driving your Eclipse Cross.
Had mine since May last year, an Eclipse Cross 3 with manual gearbox, and thoroughly enjoying it.
My only disappointment are the Headlights in comparison with the ASX I had before , which had wonderful wide spread beam headlights, which were much better than the ones the Eclipse has.
Otherwise all is fine.

Greetings Cymro!

I've had my Eclipse Cross SEL since November and have about 6k miles on it already. Very satisfied with it so far. I hope you will say the same after you've broken it in.

I want to guess you don't have the LED headlights? I do and they are awesome compared to anything I owned previously. I have even had a complaint from a pedestrian that they are too bright.

You are correct mtgtnt, they are okay but don't give the wide spread of light that the headlights on the ASX did. They also need adjusting a little as they are tending to point too much to the N/S kerb area. Will ask the dealer to reset on their Headlight alignment equipment when the car goes in for service due next month. That's if they are able to do service work then, as many workshops are closed here due to the Coronavirus situation.

Thanks All for the welcome,

Mines is a manual 3 as well, as for the headlights they are a vast improvement from the ZS, despite the ZS having nightbreakers fitted, but I have noticed that on full beam the hot spots are a bit close together so some adjustment is needed, mine was also an ex demo and had just clicked over to 12k in a year when I purchased it from the dealer.

I was actually given a new ASX as a courtesy car when my eclipse went in for some paintwork correction, and while the ASX had the fancy LED headlights, I did kick the whole car to death as it just didn't feel as finished or polished as the Eclipse did.

Previous cars before the MG ZS, was the 2016 Kia Sportage, a Honda HR-V 4x4, Volvo V40 2.0T and a highly modified 1992 VW Polo Coupe that I owned for 8 years.
I still have the 92 Polo in storage as she came a cropper on the motorway one winter, so I also have its replacement locked away in the form of a 1986 Polo Coupe that im slowly transferring everything into.
