What's it like to drive?
The car is amazing to drive. I take it up into the peaks on a regular basis and although it is only a 1ltr engine it is quite nippy. Although it has done 95000 miles it is still very nice

What's it like to park?
It is quite good at this too. Although the visibility isn't that great because you are sat so low in the car. Also this is where power steering would come in handy

Living with it

The rubber trim around the window was damaged, but it was fixed with no trouble. The car is faring up nicely and it has 95000 miles on the clock!

What's most practical about your car?
It is incredibly easy to drive.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
There arn't really many 'toys' on it, but i guess it would be boot popper
