This is our new little car. It was meant to be simply a run-around for weekday duties but my wife and I have really taken to this car. It is excellent to drive and has been reliable so far with no post-delivery issues. Not bad for a completely new designed car!

It served us really well on a recent trip from Sydney-Melbourne-Sydney in 2 days with nigh on 2000km of driving. Average fuel of 5.6l/100km which is brilliant considering it is a tough drive on any car with lots of ascents, inclement weather, and poor road quality.

Some pics after a detail last weekend. I applied a high quality sealant to the paint to give it some protection from the elements as it lives outside most the time. The paint is unusual. It looks completely different in the shade versus direct sunlight.

The plan is to source some OEM parts, in particular the 17" rims from the SLi and SLS. They are hard to find though :(
