What was the dealer like?
What's it like to drive?
Great fun to drive fast, especially on B roads. Steering has lots of feel, engine smooth and characterful. Not so good in the suburbs; crashes over potholes and speed humps; poor initial acceleration, but once it gets going then effortlessly overtakes.
What's it like to park?
Curved sides make lining it up difficult.

What's most practical about your car?
Adequate space for such a good looking car.
