    I love this car and it's engine, it can carry five people in comfort yet retains the capability to bring the distance to the fore in the blink of an eye.

    I've flip-flopped about buying one for a long time and am glad I finally took the plunge; with prices at sub £10k, they're such great value (all things being relative.)

    Thanks for the comments, I've put a fair amount of work to get the car looking as good as it is now, makes it all a bit more worthwhile!

    Beautiful looking car.

    I had one a while ago and even though it was pretty basic spec I loved it. Wasn't a patch on yours.

    Hope you have many more miles to come in it. :)

    Thanks - I would say my car is nice, but there is a real art to taking a good photo and I guess you need some idea on how to use a bloody camera. With me it's just point and shoot and hope for the best with no artistry at all:wallbash:

    This looks a lovely car and the photos are cracking:thumb:

    I've only taught myself how to do it; make sure the Sun isn't at it's highest (early morning or evening shots seem to be best) and if you're intending on including something in the background into your shot, make sure you get everything in the frame.

    It's pretty easy really, just try and picture the shot in your mind and you'll not go far wrong. :thumb:
