Way better than the Z3!!!

No body shake, sweet steering and loads of grip

Its a real cruiser with tiptronic and the 2.2 6 cylinder lump - not hugely quick but a nice top end and it sounds great when you redline it [}:)]

I think the 2.2 is very competitvely priced - you get decent performance from the 2.2 (170bhp 6 cylinder [8D]) and it sounds great. A Boxster or SLK would be loads more for the equivalent year and the only real other option would be a TT - and this wipes the floor with the TT for driver appeal (apologies TT owners!)

We paid ?26k and it has;

18" alloys

M Sports leather seats

Carver Hifi (superb)

Heated seats

PDC

But it wouldnt even see which way my VX went in a race [;)]

I agree with all the above comments.... very nice motor.

You're a lucky man but it's just a shame we dont get all that nice sunny weather to let the roof down on it [;)]

Whats the verdict then MOB? I fancy something like that for next summer

Its really nice - quick enough for the missus, fun handling and no body flexing unlike the Z3. No leaks (unlike the VX220 [:(!]) and very refined at speed.

The 3.0 is very quick - we test drove one and it flies [8D]

But the 3.0 comes with the sports suspension and couple that with the runflat tyres the ride is ridiculously hard - much worse than my VX220
