If I lived in the US I would definitely have it.

My current car is a Ford Focus 1.8 Diesel's a real POS. I had some substantial money problems in the not too distant past hence the "is it cheap?" choice.

Prior to that (3yrs ago) I had a Noble M12 GTO3. Giving that up was like giving up part of my soul. I've had various lovely cars over the last 5yrs or so but nothing made a*sholes revving their "Porsche/Ferarri/Pretty much anything" at the lights look so crestfallen 2seconds later as the Noble. It hurt my back on any normal road and made good use of my AA membership but for something built on an industrial estate in Leicester it was like it's seat was molded just for my behind.
