What does this car say about you?
Gives people the impression that you have taste. Depends on how you treat/drive the car!!

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Love it, partner not to keen on heavy clutch, but it's not her car!

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, as it does what its been built to do. Juicy if driven hard, but who wants to drive it hard when you can cruise with the 6 cylinder engine purring away?

What are you likely to buy next?
Haven't thought that far ahead.
