3 door isn't a problem for me. Seat belt in the perfect position.

How much they slug you for the service?

Well I'm 6 foot 2 and a bit, and have the seat well, back, and I still find it an uncomfortable stretch to turn for the belt, in my 5 door, it's just right there!

And the 3 door door is heavier too, which means a fair push to get out. 5 door is just so much easier. If you haven't tried a 5 door, you may not realise what you're missing, but whenever I rent a 3 door, I miss my 5 door.

Today I had a Ferrari V8 in the back too... Lucky for the 5 doors, as loading the V8 into a 3 door would have been a pain in the arse.

3 door also more of a pain in tight parking spaces, with banging doors on the car next to you. Ask me how I know  :gnasher:

75k service today...

29 minutes work... !

Longest time spent was getting the spare wheel out to check pressure...

although I had filled my washers the other day, so that saved maybe 90 seconds.....

still nothing wrong... front pads are now at ~60% remaining.........

OK:
the kids laughed at it.   :p
Bits of the trim were loose.
Hand brake warning light randomly came on and this caused the alarm to go off, had to shake the hand brake handle to stop it.
Didn't seem as nibble as I thought it could have been
The girls laughed at it...   :o
Overall it was just MEH!

It was a Rental so that may have had something to do with itÖÖ.but personally I didnít like the look of it or much else.

Donít let that put you off though.
