Value

5 out of 5

What a bargain for this much kit.

Costs

3 out of 5

Bits from manufacturer are expensive. Found europarts to be same bits half the price. Main dealer also pricey and not that good technicaly which is a bit baffling.

It's svelt.

Performance

5 out of 5

It goes like the stink.

Reliability

5 out of 5

I did 60k, taking it to 145k. Apart from some normal wear and tear items, it was excellent. New air con rad, only bad point. At that mileage, cannot complain.

Way better than being seen in a BMW and much nicer than Merc. I've got four cars and I love driving this the most.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Found ride to be jiggly andd followed road contours until tyre guy told me to increase tyre pressures by 4 to 5 lbs each tyre. Cannot believe the difference that made.
