5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Appreciated understated products of good quality.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They think its lovely. They always comment on how good the car looks.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would if my car was stolen however being a car nut I would probably want to sample some other beast.

What are you likely to buy next?
I have been considering all sorts of cars, the Bentley GT, Porsche 911, Mercedes S-coupe, BMW M6, Audi RS6 and the RS5. Unfortunately all of the above lose a lot of money very quickly. I guess I am hesitant.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
March 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
I bought the car for £23.5k without seeing the car in the flesh or any pictures. The car is fully loaded so what is there to see! It's held its value extremely well as I got a great deal on the car.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
The car obviously comes with Quattro and the glorious V8. I felt I needed to experience the naturally aspirated V8 engine before manufacturers stop making them. What an experience indeed!

What was the dealer like?
The dealer put BMW sized tyres on the car which caused issues with traction. They had to refund £1k which was lovely so I could get new tyres. They caused a stink but they had no legs to stand on.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Four wheel drive all of the time and so traction loss which means usual performance in all conditions.

What's it like to park?
Simple as it gets.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
No, nothing at all over 4 years.

What's most practical about your car?
It fits in a wife which is all legs and two baby seats in the back. Everyone is comfortable.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The B&O sound system is glorious. It is a must. Also the car is full loaded... there's nothing better! The black phantom paint is beautiful! It really sets off the chrome.
