Smart little car.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Cool little car, would probably be a little less cool if it wasnt black.

Perfect for the super-mini its intended to be, even if a little pricey. However i would like to get something a little bigger and faster.

What are you likely to buy next?
Nothing in particular, but definatly bigger and faster.
