It is absolutely ruined. That front bumper is hideous. The excess weight in the system will obviously make the now firm ride even more unbearable on bumps and for cornering and it will lose the whole 'nimble' feeling that we get out of them. I'm not even a fan of the drop down dvd system in the rear.
Give me the engine and the exhaust and burn whats left.
I really think Matt Farah exaggerated about the gearbox being old school. It's not an ideal gearbox I agree. Slow driving is pretty awful in it really. Want a car that's good for that, then buy a VW diesel golf. Want a car with a capable gearbox at high rpm and at high speeds? It works fine.

£1000 a month service costs, before you factor in the 9 mpg average. Then it's just the joyful enthusiasm it has for trying to kill you in any situation, or itself every other day.
