£7,300

When did you buy the car?
April 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
I seem to have have got a lot of car for the money, i got 3600 for my citroen c2 which i was very pleased with. only got 3 months warranty though and im yet to see that so i have to ring them up and find out more details.

The looks, the toys, the speed.

He was very polite and joked about, well he wants a sale.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Well this is why you get a car like this, it shifts! the mid range grunt is truly impressive from 30-90 in 3rd gear is crazy fast. its can get very addictive pushing the right pedal, true it could go round corners better but its no truck. you have to bet careful doing a quick -0-60 as its front wheel drive and with all the torque the wheels spin and squeal, same with driving in the rain.

What's it like to park?
Its a joy to park, the sensors work great.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
My rear passenger has stopped working so ill have to get that seen to. plus the cabin has quite a few rattles and squeaks which is frustrating as its ment to be a luxury car so its not german build quality.

What's most practical about your car?
The boot is huge, but rear leg room isnt great neither is front room is im honest im 6ft and i feel a bit squashed in it, i didnt expect that from a car of its size.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Well where do i start, sat nav (though it has no post code entry ) parking sensors, cruise control, heated seats its got the lot. its safe to say you wont be wanting for toys.
