Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Brilliant corners like its on rails, No really its great ive even tryed to unstick it and she just carried on. Its very comfortable which is a prob on the Mway as you can find your speed creaping up without you realizing. The only problem with the car i the slight Turbo lag if you feather the throtel between changes its hardley noticable. Mines got 150ps so she will pick up her skirt and run when asked and has all the power you really need on the roads these days, that being said im having it remapped soon to 207ps it doesnt really need it but i want to see if it will sort out the Turbo lag and give me alittle more MPG.

What's it like to park?
Well im getting used to it now. but it slighty narrower at the front so take a bit of getting used to but it has sensors and good visability so all in all very good.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing although to be fair i havent had it long. It seems very well put together and solid and they do have a very reputation.

What's most practical about your car?
Bags of space in the boot and big bins inside, Alot of people say there isnt enough leg room in the back well im nearly 6ft and have taken many people on long journeys with out any complaints.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Probabley the see you home light option. There is a button on the key remote with a line on it press this and the front drls light up as well as the rear lights inc number plate lights which is a really nice function when trying to find in a dark car park. Also the side indecators light up to act as puddle lights which is a nice touch. And the stereo has a very nice crisp sound with an AUX port for your Mp3 palyer.
