Have you had any problems with the car?
I have had to search hard to get suspension parts for rear, which cost a few hundred but was told this was just unlucky and the gearbox selector went which I was told was common. Wouldn't have expected this as it's only 3 yrs old and would have been covered by warranty.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Sat nav until it was stolen, great bit of Pioneer kit.
