A big fast comfortable saloon that is practical for everyday use
Brake pad/disk warning light goes on and off.
I bought this car knowing it would need work, including this it cost me about £5500, which included new shocks, new brakes, and a full service. Thanks to Awesome GTI!
A very fast car, with huge grip and great handling, almost no body roll through the corners.
My only criticism of the way it drives is that it cannot hide its size, doesn't feel quite as nimble as my old Ford Focus. Obviously much, much faster though, with more grip.
The seats are extremely supportive, and the cabin is a lesson on how dashboards should look and feel.
Considering this is a top of the range car, it is not exactly loaded with toys. For Example, no electric or heated seats, no cruise control.
Boot is huge, but a little awkward. Quite shallow, although long.
Not the cheapest to run, but considering the performance available, very reasonable. Especially if you are prepared to do some of the simpler maintenance tasks.
This is easily the best car I have owned, I hope it lasts forever!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
