Never buy new. New model will lower second-hand prices further still.

Costs

Be prepeared for some expensive bits like brakes. Don't buy if you're only going to drive in town. its a motorway cruiser and will return over 30mpg with a light foot.

Stealth mobile. Svelt and sophisticated. Some think and old man's car though!

Great recaro front seats, multiadjustable. Back a little slippery on leather.

Not oversecure, but crims so far given me a miss. Double glazing may deter.
