    My car

    I bought a two-year-old 200 Kompressor Sport automatic two years ago. It seems to be a "hybrid" with the "old bodywork" but a 200 Kompressor engine.

    The car is in mint condition and rattle free. It is docile in town and brisk on the open road.

    According to my son, who has driven it, it has the same level of performance as his BMW 325i, whilst the road holding is first class. It has sailed through the MOT and servicing has been inexpensive.

    At 37,000 miles I am on the original tyres, brakepads, exhaust, etc. There have been no breakdowns or disappointments. Typical fuel economy is around 33mpg, with 37mpg possible on motorway driving.

    It's a very hard proposition to fault, I shall undoubtedly keep it for the foreseeable future.
