Brilliant

Faults:

Nothing. When I bought it, however, it had a sagging headliner, slightly cracked wood trim, and also the sunroof bit of headliner isn't attached properly.

General Comments:

Well made, comfortable, beautiful, reliable, fast, drives like a sport car. It won the Top Gear motoring survey, this body style, over every other car for customer satisfaction. Best car in its segment by far. Excellent V8.
