    i used to have one, they look very nice, , there very comfy, mine had 96.000 miles on it when i got rid, because id heard they were not too good after 100k,

    fuel consumpion is awaful
    tyres cost the earth(wouldnt reccomend cheap ones the side walls were too bouncy on a cheap tyre i had put on)
    interior albeit comfortable, is a drab grey, unless your lucky to get leather or half leather
    make sure you check the speedo as they had a 75% fail rate, this is what vx told me, so it could have been replace, so check service history with a fine toothed combe
    there not very fast eitherm in my opion its a small engine for a big car

    there is an rs sport 3.2 swb but there as rare as hens teeth

    i had a 2001 rs sport 2.2 as my first car, even with all the stuff listed above, id still have another any day, id just get the olimpia spec, fully colour coded and with leather
