    I forgot to update this. I sold the car back in April. I was fed up of the poor ride quality, horrible seats and just generally unhappy with the car.

    Replaced it with an Alfa

    Went for a Giulietta Cloverleaf mate. 238bhp, 5 doors, insanely comfy, adaptive bi xenons etc. Only 7.5k with 58k on the clock.

    How is the Alfa to drive mate? I've always been a fan of Alfa Romeo's but scared of the reliability. They do look to be made with passion which many cars are missing nowadays.

    Andy's already had a Mazda RX8 so an Alfa won't phase him

    It's great. I get around 400 miles per tank combined. It's got body roll, but it's more a GT car than a hot hatch.

    Its 235bhp, and it does have that brutal acceleration. I leave it in 'all-weather' mode which gives less power, light steering and is great for town and casual driving.

    It fits what I want perfectly. As Mark said, I had an RX8 and that was replaced by a Renaultsport Megane 250, which I then sold so the Wife could get a Juke Nismo RS.

    From general consensus the reliability is much better, limited to the odd wiring issue.

    Its 5 door, great boot, great MPG, comfortable ride and theres a good aftermarket support for modifications. It's a really nice place to be in.

    Its ace because the fuel needle, temperature and revs is labelled in italian; 'benzina', 'Acqua' and 'Giri'. Typical Alfa quirk.
