Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's really nice. The drive firm but comfortable. The gearbox is really nice in sports mode. The car starts in second gear when in comfort mode and in a few occasion it felt really slow off the marks particularly at busy junctions. I now only use the sports mode.

What's it like to park?
It is a bit too wide for supermarkets and the rear view is not that good. Otherwise OK.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The list of faults is long... Window motor on both front doors followed by the aircon valves then the glow plug Ecu, then the turbo... nearly £5000 worth of repairs in 8 months. But all under warranty. As soon as the warranty runs out I'll sell it. Way to unreliable.

What's most practical about your car?
It's not really a practical car. Although a 4 door coupé is useful.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I like the frame-less door windows and cruise control on motorway.
