    Haha, i'm just being honest Lofty, i've never driven such an unresponsive piece of garbage in my life, even my laguna mk2 was quicker than this, same size engine as well, at least the French got that one right apart from the stupid key card design to start it. The worst thing about it, is the front drive shaft runs through the engine mount, no wonder it feels like the wheels are going to fall off at any given moment when you slow down quickly.

    Nice of Amazon to give me a £20 voucher last week, so i bought a new transmission mount and lower rear bushing. Estimated delivery date 9-14th Dec and arrived today from Micks Garage, so no more slingshot front wheels once it's fitted, feels like driving a rubber band at the moment when you slow down, even worse when braking hard to avoid hitting cyclists that seem hell bent on getting killed. Had one cut right in front of me today from left hand cycle lane across my bonnet almost, instead of waiting to make a right turn. Scared the proverbial out of me. Very rare i use the horn but very necessary in this instance.
