Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£15,800

When did you buy the car?
November 2014

I got quite alot off the car including an excellent finance repayment package which was tailored for my needs. I got a free private plate transfer too which sweetened up the deal for me.

Very helpful, they have been there at every stage from querying to purchasing the car. After sales is fantastic too.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Smooth. The Twin Turbo engine does a lot of justice as it makes it easy and calm to drive on the motorway aswell as around town, due to it being very light and nimble.

What's it like to park?
Slightly harder than my old Corolla. The reason for this, is the long front bonnet which makes tight spaces a little hard.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
None.

What's most practical about your car?
Bootspace, which isn't too bad for a RWD car.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The iDrive system is excellent. It is so much easier to use now and more user friendly that what it used to be. I like how the Media functionality is all built into the same area, which makes it easy to find and play music from my ipod or phone.
