I have a 2013 V6S convertible. I also have a 2013 Brochure
Mpg - 30 if your good - low 20's if your being a yob
All models are 8 speed paddle shift in 2013/14
I get over 30mpg when touring around Europe in mine. Much better than i expected tbh.
Options that I would have:
Sunblinds (yes they were an option)
Adaptive front lights (cornering lights etc)
Wind Deflector (was a no cost option but some didnt come with them)
Lockable interior stowage (again was a no cost option but some didnt specify). Locks with the car but allows you to leave roof down.
If you've got any questions on certain things i will try and answer them when i'm passing the forum.
Oh and the paddles are mainly bronze, the aluminium paddles were an option and can be retro fitted in about 10 minutes (so dont worry about them)
