The car is very good. It is very comfortable, a great drive and the specification is outstanding.There are a few concerns for the future as the paint, described as self healing, is very soft so scratches and chips very easily and the computer system freezes and crashes from time to time. The worries are magnified as a result of the quite shocking service provided by the dealer. The car was delivered dented on the outside and scratched on the inside. It went back once and the dent was repaired but not the scratch so it had to go back again. Each time it has to go back to Reading where all the work is carried out so for a time repair miles accounted for a significant proportion of my overall milage. When the car was with the dealer a DVD disc was taken and despite many promises, four months later has not been replaced. The owner clubs membership activation code is still awaited after 5 months of ownership. This is needed to access the breakdown cover that comes with the car. The sat nab is out of date with no date for renewal. I could go on but you probably get the picture. It is a real shame as it is a lovely car and has attracted a lot of complements and interest from drivers who have not seen one before and ask what it is like. The answer is sadly "Great but don't buy one in the UK"
