I had excellent service from my dealer. The car was brand new. Took it in for the

1000 mile initial service on the Friday and took it offroading on the Sunday.


Everyone thought i was mad.  Even though some of them had tuned cars and

offroad tyres i was the only one that made it up one bank cleanly. But as you crested

the top it dipped a little and i didnt have enough lock and clipped a tree with the bonnet.


The service manager was also there and he said bring it in and they will do the work

under warranty. Put it down as a paint defect.   :)


Only other issue was the crank sensor failed, or the magnet fell of or somwething silly.


Sold to my mate and he sold it to a guy that shipped it out to Bulgaria. Said they love

them over there due to the poor road conditions.
