Very good. If it's the right colour, it's a head turner!


Nothing yet, only had it 4 weeks. Cup holder cover is broken already though :/

General Comments:

Very good car. Very popular in Ireland, so they're obviously a good car if a lot of people have one.

Cheap to buy compared to a Mercedes E-Class, Volkswagen Passat CC and Citroen DS5, which are the 5 Series contenders.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
