Performance

5 out of 5

See driving, a little under steer in wet, great fun when driving fast. Would love to have chipped at some point.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Build quality not as good as the VW. Broken CD stacker, rear widow spray x2, electrical fault meant windows stop working, all sorted under warranty. Only thing that is really a pain, is the RDS on the radio which very poor.

Comfort

5 out of 5

A bit bumpy on some of this countries rubbish motorways. Had arm rest and cruise put in which helps with the 32k miles a year!
