Had it for 6 days now but haven't really driven it.

Few squeaks and rattles but to be honest I expected that from a French car.

I think some of the economy stories I've read are going to be unattainable. (Maybe because it's a 100hp rather than one of the lower power variants?)

From a quick experiment it seems to be awesome pottering round at 40-50 mph where silly numbers appear on the OBC.

At 70 mph on the motorway though it seemed to settle at mid to high 50's.
Currently in Ben Cole's garage:
Audi Q7, BMW Z4, Clio DCi100 (deceased)
