Didn't like the one I drove very much. It was an R-reg TD Estate, what model does that make it? Anyway, didn't feel like it had any guts at all, and the roll was atrocious -it made French cars look like they've got stiff suspension!

Only had 80k on it too, shame as it looked to be in good nick (well, aside from being gold, perhaps that's what really put me off.)

Mind you, I don't set out with the intent of buying anything specific when looking for a car, I just read reviews of everything that takes my interest and look for common faults on that model. It's like my Lag - it's not the car I'd have chosen at all, since they're not well known for their... ahem... reliability, but that said, it was in much better condition than everything else I looked at - it had been looked after, and I think that probably matters a lot more than the trivial differences between boring cars that are only really built for their functionality... Now, perhaps that's not how I'd choose between a Ferrari and a Lamborghini, but especially looking at the lower end of the car market, you've got to be quick when you see something decent for the money!
