Summary:

Amazing, no regrets. Fun!

Faults:

Had the stone guard on the front right disc brake rubbing against the disc because it had been bent in. Bent it back out, now the car is perfect.

General Comments:

Surprisingly fast.

Has a nice sound when you punch it.

Has somebody body roll, but some low profile tyres and stiffer suspension can sort that out.

Air con is great.

Massive boot for the size of the car.

Very user friendly.

DIY repairs are very easy.

Also from a full tank, I have so far driven 437 km.

And there is still another mm on the gauge. So I'm thinking 500 km from a tank.
