Well to my shock (no pun intended) I've found the problem and thanks to @andrewparker who pointed this out - 3 transport blocks in each shock absorber. Cannot believe that this has got missed by the supplying dealer whom i'm waiting a response from as we speak. I've removed them as its very easy to do and its a completely different car. You have to jack up the front of the car (no need to remove the front wheel) and lift up the shock gaiter, there were 3 in each side.
Honestly, it would be unbelievable if it didn't happen so often. Glad you found out the cause though.
Had the same with a golf gti, 30 miles was enough to wreck the top mounts and the struts. Take it back, get it checked, make a massive stink!!
