    Being an ex-scooby WRX driver I thought it was time to grow up (passed the big 4-0 recently) ... and with a job change (London->Portsmouth) I wanted a decent economical car that didn't compromise on performance.

    Did my research and the 123d fitted the mark.

    With money burning a hole in my pocket I eventually opted for a 123d M Sport (registered Sep 08) that was really over spec'd for my liking and budget, but the guys at Woods twisted my arm (and I knocked 'em down over £1k) so I took delivery in Jul 09.

    Had a few months of getting to know the car and apart from a Pro Nav niggle I have I really like the car (although I do miss 4wd )

    Cheers.
