    Great to find this forum, thanks. I got my Twingo last week. I'm delighted with it. I can't understand why reviews refer to the car being sluggish and needing to be thrashed to keep up with the traffic. I find that the car accelerates effortlessly on a light throttle and using few revs. Also...
