Hi all, well eventually bit the bullet and purchased a used Evoque last week.
Just waiting for it to be prepared before collecting later this week.
Joined this forum as I’m hoping for lots of knowledgeable tips and recommendations.
It’s a 2013 Pure Tech 2.2 in white.
I’ll post some pictures later, based up in Newcastle.

Thanks for all the welcoming comments, always good to find a friendly forum.
I’m going to post a couple of pictures of how it looks when we looked at it.
Then update as I add some bits and pieces.

Well we picked up the new car yesterday, very impressed so far.
Spent today adding a few bits and pieces.
Started with some purchases fro the guys at powerfuluk all nicely packaged up.
Changed the grill to a gloss black 2016 autobiography version including black badge, the changed the lettering on the bonnet to gloss black. Then changed the silver side vents to gloss black, fitted some side running boards, and mudflaps front and rear. Also changed the key phob body as this was pretty shabby. The garage powder coated the wheels gloss back for me, £140, so was a no brainier.
Just need to change the boot lid letters to black and add gloss black strip over the silver one on the boot.
Really happy with how it looks.

Well, wife drove to Surrey on Tuesday, 308 miles, said it was a pleasure to drive. Sat Nav isn’t the best, she reverted back to the Waze app on her phone, so much better.
She rang me to say my newly fitted badge on the new grill supplied by Powefuluk had fallen off, a bit annoying.
I emailed Powerfuluk and explained what had happened. Just had a reply from Destiny in customer services there, they are sending a new one out today. I must say, I’m very impressed with them, nice to see a company that actually cares about its customers.
Just thought I would share this positive story.

Hi Hoseman, good they will replace with no quibble! Good to hear.

Make sure you clean and degrease the application area, use IPA or a good degreaser before you stick the new badge on.

Cheers for the advice.
The new one is back in its rightful place on the grill now. I used some cleaning alcohol before I applied it, seems to be stuck fast now, though I must admit I have a quick glance most times I get out of the car just in case it decides to part company again.
