Brilliant!

The car handled brilliantly and feels very sharp and precise. Never regretted buying it. However on the downside it was very expensive to run- in 10,000 miles I had to replace the clutch and dual mass flywheel (£800), both lamda sensors (£150 each) and servicing was almost £300 a time. It wasn't bad on fuel either, I live in a hilly area of Devon and averaged 24mpg locally, 30mpg on a run. And it keeps you safe- I spun off the road into a tree at 45mph and although the car was a write-off, I walked away completely uninjured.
