Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
0-60/100km-7 secs top end -150 with ease.211bhp Mine had done 170,000mls and sat in a barn for years but still drove like it was made yesterday. I had a rare manual version and it felt so quick in mid range power. Steering was fine and very smooth. Handling could be a bit temperamental in the wet but isnt that the case with any rear wheel drive? If you ever fancy one forget an auto source a manual then drop a 5 series kit on it with chrome rims and it will look the dogs wotsits.

What's it like to park?
Its huge so parking is a nightmare. Have to be careful because from a drivers point of view it doesnt seem very big looking forwards but it is.

Living with it
