    Just read this myself,

    £43000 for the V6

    I don't find it displeasing and even if depreciation is bad, a 4 year old car will still have 3 years warranty.

    Warranty length not an issue? £43k to spend? One word...............Mustang!

    I don't really call £43k affordable for Kia!

    Interior looks very low rent, Mercedes copy.

    What's hair got to do with it?

    I ain't had any since 88 and wouldn't even if I could now grow a full head.

    Go on, at least take one for a test drive. I'm planning on doing so this summer, even though I've no intention of buying one.

    People at the Golf Club would faint if I turned up in a Mustang. It would be seen as a 'poor show' !!!

    Doesn't look too shabby does it.

    Nice to see a curved dashboard rather than slab straight.
