5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
A Young Boy Driving an old mans car. But it never bothered me I loved the car

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Loved it

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would have had a nother C3 but they no longer do the Exclusive Model with the 1.6i 16v Sensodrive only with a 4 speed Automatic Gearbox which I didn't really want to go back to a fully automatic car after owning this car as I love the paddles by the wheel and the 5 gears as this car was brilliant on fuel.

What are you likely to buy next?
I now have a 08 C2 1.6i 16v VTR Sensodrive
