Value

5 out of 5

A car in its own. High specification for the early twenties is just amazing.

Costs

3 out of 5

Will be soon trading in for something a bit more economical. The MPG is a major let down - and don't start me on the oil...!

Performance

Performance is superb. Although does lag a bit at low revs.

Reliability

4 out of 5

No issues here either. Although have to be careful if it doesn't start first time. Need to keep clutch depressed when cranking.
