What price did you pay?
£10,000

December 2006

Did you get a good deal and why?
Hmmm at first I did but never really did my research on the depreciation on the car and what I would be paying for the car at the end or the term.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I bought the car because of it's looks and spec, and was astonished at all the bells and whistles of a luxury car for the price on finance at the time.

What was the dealer like?
Well the dealer has had some very disappointed customers indeed and although this was my second car from them I gave them a second chance and still paid to get it right, The sales advisers are very polite and helpful as always but only interested in your sale.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Never slow in any mode, a slight pause from pulling off from idle.. turbo diesel, a very comfortable motorway cruiser, good handling, Driving position could of been better for a 5'6 person, good all round relax drive to be fair.

What's it like to park?
Great with the parking sensors and electric mirrors considering the longish car it is.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Anti pollution and FAP control issues and error messages, severl times had took it to main dealer to deal with it at cost, turbo soleniode, abs sensors, and very expensive radio valves on the wheels either snapped off or gave errors on the dash with low tyre pressure or punctures when the tyres where fine. I had them all done and not much happened after that.

What's most practical about your car?
Ample space in front and back cabin, big boot, good storage places, cup holder, lights on mirrors, rear and side blinds that fold down hidden, all around electric fold away mirrors and much more!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The three mode Porsche gear box , sport, tip auto was awesome!! and the sport mode, I had fun with this and was amazed at the performance and ratio for a front wheel saloon .
