Superb car, an absolute rocket ship...
Build quality is not brilliant - paintwork is a bit 'thin' in places, and one or two wires look badly placed (e.g. the wire from the rain sensor is not located in the recess intended for it, but trapped instead), and there are a few rattles, and some wind noise. It is also impossible to completely switch off the ventilation fan - annoying design feature.
Gearbox is a bit 'notchy', especially when changing down the gears, until it gets warm, but is fine once it is warmed up.
Engine sounds sporty except at low revs ( < 3000 rpm ) where is just sound like any other car.
Valve gear is a bit noisy when the engine is cold, but is virtually silent once the engine is warmed up to temperature - much like any other sporty 16 valve engine.
Overtaking rev is 4500 rpm in any gear - get ready for takeoff, and punch the pedal, and virtually nothing on the road can keep up.
I love mine, despite it's minor niggles - you can't fail to grin from ear to ear when it takes off and pant's over the Metro Kensington in front :-)
