Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
very smooth ride, the engine and gearbox are sound. Great performance and just an extremely care free drive - fantastic on a summers evening with the roof down

What's it like to park?
not bad - its quite a long car and with the vinyl back screen its not got the best visibility in the world. Ivesting in some parking sensors for the rear would be a smart move.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Unfortuantely quite alot has gone wrong. Owned the car for about 18months and have £2,500 worth of bills to show for it. Car is now 6-7years old with 65k on the clock, so I guess things do start to go wrong at that age, but once an issue was fixed, it hasnt gone wrong again.

What's most practical about your car?
big front seats, nice and comfy - full leather interior is lovely & good quality - not alot of leg room in the back, but then, im in the front.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
As standard, probably the sport mode on the auto box, the car genuinely changes and becomes a different animal and alot more fun to drive.
