    My car

    This is my wife's car. For the first time ever, we now race to get to the car keys first when we go out.

    When ever I get to drive, I always end up with a smile on my face.

    My recommendation would be to go and buy one, they are fantastic. They are well put together and great fun to drive.

    My car

    I have it all, an MX5 2.0 Sport and the German autobahn - I KNOW this car can do 140 at about 5800 revs because I have done it - truly scary but an absolute gifted delight passing Mercs, Audi's and BMW's. Cat and mouse has never been so much fun!

    Not that i advocate breaking the law, but when in Europe its kill or be killed. The 4000 miles I have done since July when I collected my baby from Sheerness only about 600 of them have been done at the lawful speed, I swear my car goes into shock when the rev counter falls below 3000 - this car screams drive me and with rock on the stereo and the top down what more could you want. The other toy is a Truimph Rocket 3, a joy to race my husband on a clear and a dry uncrowded run - makes me wish I had two bums!

    For all those thinking about buying this car dont hesitate it is everything I expected it to be and more and does exactly what it says on the tin!

    My car

    Ooooh Crikey! This thing goes like the clappers!

    My partner and I are in love!

    We bought ours pre-registered and saved loads.

    I just love slipping in and firing it up, it always puts a smile on my face. Try one, you will not be disappointed!
