    My car

    A great car to drive. Steering is responsive with lots of feel. Engine sounds great and provides plenty of power for easy overtaking. Brakes are powerful with great feel.

    The interior is well thought out with good quality materials. Easy to get comfortable driving position even for me at 6ft 1in. Convertable hood is quick and easy to operate.

    Only drawback is the run-flat tyres. They give a very firm ride and are very expensive to replace.

    Great car with fantastic hanlding and "smile on your face" motoring, especially when the sun is out and the roof is down!

    My car

    I've only owned the car since Christmas Eve 2004! However, reading the other reviews I'm very nervous about what to expect regarding quality. I bought the car with 2400 miles and only 4 months old. Everything works perfectly and I'm totally in love with it.

    The lines of the car really shouldn't work at all, a bit like looking at Uma Thurman - a little unusual but intriguingly gorgeous - and the driving position is fantastic with that poweful curve of the bonnet ahead of you. It feels like the car wants to take you to the horizon as fast as you would want it to, with a deep snarl to that creamy smooth straight six as the theme tune.

    The only negative point so far is the dealership and the paintwork. As for rattles and squeaks, show me a roadster that is completely silent. An no matter how much money you spend on your trusty steed, there will always be quality issues.

    My car

    Purchased a demo model, first registered in June 2003, picked it up in September 2003. It has been absolutely brilliant, performance and fuel economy knocks the Boxster. A great roadster!
