I did test drive it. Had to put down a refundable £100 deposit first before I was able to book the test.  Although it was never likely to be refunded as I was pretty sure before driving it I would love it; and I did.


Off to pick it up in the morning, can't wait.

Ahhhhh, wellll, I'm not especially good at waxing lyrical or taking pictures of my nice things. It did cross my mind to take some pictures of it in the countryside on Saturday afternoon while I took a leak (against the offside rear wheel of course) on my way back from a drive to Salisbury as it looked rather saucy sat there but decided against it 😬

Suffice to say I love the thing, very different driving experience to the hot hatches I am used to - quite exhausting with the top down in the sun, but incredibly satisfying. I'll try to get some money shots the next time I take it out!

Thank you for the welcome, Michael!
