Very easy to use. All that performance, ans still 25-30mpg. Have had 35mpg at 70mpg with cruise control, which I use a lot.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Replaced rear brake discs at 18k miles. Rust on all wheelarches, boot lock and bonnet below grille at 40k/10years. All probably due to only doing 12k miles in first 8 years of its life so it had stood around a lot. Design of wheelarches retains wet mud. Sunroof and driver's door rattle a little. I didn't expect any of the above on a car of this quality. No other problems, and now the work is done I still stand back and admire this beautiful car.

What's most practical about your car?
Very easy to use. All that performance, ans still 25-30mpg. Have had 35mpg at 70mpg with cruise control, which I use a lot.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Electronic boot opening on key fob or dashboard switch, and cruise control.
