What does this car say about you?
Not really sure.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They all like it.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, but I want the newer model, and I'd got the 530 or above.

What are you likely to buy next?
I'm going back to uni, so looks like it might have to be exchanged for something cheaper, but if I can hang on to it, I will!
