    4 out of 5 4.0

    Quite firm ride at low speeds, but stiffer suspension for sportier model, corners brilliantly, very nice driving postiton, nice and quiet!

    Performance

    4 out of 5 4.0

    0-60 in 10sec, 125 top speed can't complain, could do with a few more horses under bonnet, nothing an exhaust etc won't fix.
