  • Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    I have a nice car that attracts only good attention!

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They have no idea what it is, then I take them out in it and they want one!

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    YES, because only a few people have them, it is a massively underated car that packs a huge punch. When I get bored of it im going to put some new alloys on it! sorted!

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Would like an audi rs4 or m3, maybe a vx220 vxr but its not practical. Im keeping this for a long time!

    just wanted a wolf in sheeps clothing, something that didnt shout about what it does, found a great deal and was sold!

    What was the dealer like?

    they could have been better!

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Great.. takes some concentration when flooring it around the country lanes, but when you get into it, its engaging and great fun. Torque steer is minimal to be honest and the breaking is great, theres no fade when breaking forcefully. Will beat most things in a straight line and is massively underated in the corners.

    What's it like to park?

    Easy, but parking sensors would have been nice

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Not at all, but wouldnt expect to!

    What's most practical about your car?

    Can get the dog and the shopping in the boot, stacks of room for everyone. 5 doors is great! nothing worse than having to get out of your seat to let someone get in/out, especially if its raining!

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The trip computer is good, the automatic whipers and lights make it all easy!
