Its a 51 plate 1.8 petrol oh my god its crap to drive no go in it at all and i cant see the speed cus iam so tall i have ajusted the wheel but still no good. I would hate to be any taller cus me head is on the roof i am only 6ft.

    Lucky you. Am busy arguing with the garage to replace the turbo on mine, to the point the trading standards are now involved as its dragged on for over 2 months.

    fingers crossed the turbo is the fault for you, new turbo fitted i bet it'll fly but remember the turbo care, wait til it warms up... and for it to cool down too.
