    We bought it simply because we liked how it looked and the 5008 model has 3 ISOFIX independent seats in the middle row and two additional in the boot...

    For 3 kids under 5 it's pretty much the perfect car.
    I test drove the 2l GT model when I looked at my last company car, but the depreciation they suffer made it a no go for a lease car.
    However this plays into my hands now I’m looking for buy a car.
    Another one with a really slick interior and every gadget under the sun

    Yeah I drove the 2L version and almost bought one but then a 1.6L GT line ex-demo came up with only 4,000 on the clock so I haggled and got that.

    It's the wife's car more than mine but it's a great car to drive and I honestly don't miss the extra grunt from the 2L now I know how to drive it. We drive an hour or so down to Devon to see family pretty regular and I'm always flicking it into sport to overtake. Never really felt like it needed more even fully loaded with the kids in the back.

    The interior is really what sets it apart. The dashboard is slick and has wireless charging and a massive screen, plus maps appear in the main digital screen as well so if you're going off navigation you can have it front and centre.

    Just has a lot of nice touches throughout. You can even take the back seats out of the boot entirely saving you a good 22kg in weight and adding extra space. We did that when we drove to France last year and filled up all that under floor space with booze on the way back. Very handy!

    Got up this morning and washed both the Lexus and the Peugeot. Checked fluid levels etc.

    Peugeot was very low on coolant so went and bought some. Filled her up and then took her to get some fuel and inflate the tyres. Then took her for a spin between junctions 6 and 7 on the ME (basically either end of Basingstoke where I live). Got home and noticed mild smell of burning plastic. Popped the bonnet and no smoke but notice some liquid near the dipstick. Check under.care and there's a constant dripping of coolant onto the drive. It's stopped now but have booked it into the local garage round the corner next Tuesday to check it over. I've a sneaky feeling that it's going to cost more than the car is probably worth.

    ****sticks. I could do without another stupid expense while on furlough.

    Looks like I'm selling my Type-R my next week, all going to plan. I've basically been offered a different car for free and while it won't quite deliver those lovely v-tech thrills it will save me a ton on insurance, road tax and fuel. That's how I'm pitching it to myself anyway
