    I really like the look of it.... and the interior.... But thats where it ended for me.

    When i took it for a test drive i was slightly disspointed. You really had to ring it neck to get it too shift.

    Also the fuel consumption is nuts

    What do you all think, cool or uncool?

    It will need a s much oil as it does fuel. make sure he checks it at least once a week.

    Not for me, I'm afraid - looks like it's been cobbled together out of 3 other cars. The opportunity to say the word ****el is always good, though.

    Very nice car, the only thing against them is the amount of fuel it sups, other to that its got a decent boot, space for 4 proper sized passengers and a great standard kit level, very easy to drive and communicates very well, setup allows a little bit of slip (fun) but doesn't let you get into trouble. You can't drive it like a regular car as the engine isn't like anything else and you have to thrash it.....9000 rpm them change! But once your used to its great.

    The best bit was i borrowed mates once and 4 year old nephew thought it was Lightning Mcqueen from cars! Cant get much cooler than that!

    Indeed, iv taken it out a few time since and have grown to love it. It's a fantastic car. Although another friend recently got a same age mint 350z and I definitely prefer that
