4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Most people like it, male friends seem to think it is a bit too feminine?

Would you buy this car again and why?
Love the car, but can't really justify the expense, particularly the servicing costs which are ridiculous

What are you likely to buy next?
Would probably go for an Audi next time, you get more for your money

Buying experience

3 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
January 2009

Did you get a good deal and why?
No, with hindsight it was over priced, but I didn't have the confidence to buy privately and wanted a warranty.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

What was the dealer like?

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Quite good fun but there is a lag when you put your foot down, before the turbo kicks in. Not as quick off the mark as my old 150bhp golf GTI, but makes up for it in the 30-70mph range

What's it like to park?
Really easy once you get used to the band across the rear windscreen

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Needed a respray as it was rusting around the wheel arches, fortunately, it was covered by the 12 month warranty

What's most practical about your car?

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Automatic headlights, simple accessory but really useful
