What's it like to drive?
Brings a smile to my face every time i go past 5,000 revs! Take the roof off, and you cant help but feel good with the sun in your face! Handeling is good. Lots of grip, and it does let you know when your about to loose it (i should know!) Grips corners and roundabouts well, begs you to power through them! It is low to the ground, so speed bumps are a pain. Beware of bumps not on public roads as they tend not to conform to the legal requirements (like where i work) With a passenger i scrape the bottom of the car. Also dont bother looking over your shoulder to check that massive blind spot you have, all you will see is pillar! As long as you check your mirrors regulary you will be fine. It does attract a few boy racers in their barried up saxos - but they are quickly dispatched! Feul econom
What's it like to park?
Well you cant see much out the back, but the mirrors are more than adequate and anyone who is reasoable at parking will have no trouble after a week.
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing serious in a year, but watch out for rust by the wheel arches.
What's most practical about your car?
Nothing! Seriously though, the boot is huge, more space than my old golf! Pretty good fuel efficency as long as you keep it below 4,000 revs
Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Well VTEC is awesome (not sure if that counts) not just for the performance but also the noise! I alos love the electric rear window!
