    What does this car say about you?

    Fun :O).

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

    They think it's very me and all say how lovely it is.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes, love it! OK, so it doesn't have the fancy added extras like the 1.6 or S but i was happy with the 1.4 model as i didn't go into this looking for the most powerful car. I have been driving 1.4's for years so this suited me fine. It's a gorgeous, fun looking car with nice handling on corners and easy to drive. Great all round vision and a nice feel.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Mini! But not yet.. i've only had this a few weeks and hope to have it for a few more years at least.

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    No (touch wood!).

    What's most practical about your car?

    I LOVE this car, whenever i see it on the drive i smile. With this version of the 1.4, it's basic but functional and very easy to drive.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    I thought the stop/start mechanism would annoy me but i have turned this off so you don't have to use it. I like the engine start up operation of putting the key in and pressing the button. Lovely comfortable seating.
