What does this car say about you?
That I am a masochist.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Looks OK.

Would you buy this car again and why?
No. Used to have a Mazda 6 MPS and would take one any day over this. It's getting binned. It seems to swill Super Unleaded faster than the Mazda too.

What are you likely to buy next?
An orthopaedic mattress.

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Too much sound and fury for my liking out of the supercharger. Prefer the relative quiet of a turbo. Sticks to the road very well, but the ride will have your fillings out.

What's it like to park?
Easy. The beeping when you reverse is irritating though, although you need it as reverse is too close to 1st.

Living with it
