    Hi everyone. New owner as of Tuesday!

    So today I test drove a few small cars and I liked the Space Star over all of them, or rather, for the same spec and 2,500 less I definitely wanted the Space Star!

    I couldn't understand what all the reviews were talking about frankly. The I10 or Picanto didn't feel any better built and the i10 felt like I was in a bloody roller coaster.

    Very happy with the car, getting the arm rest fitted so we will see how we go! Look forward to learning about the car

    Your new Space Star looks great, Zinfandel! You must be excited to pick up your new car on Tuesday.

    My own 2014 Mirage has been a good car. I don't have the centre armrest.

    Yes very excited. I have never had a *new* car before! Can't wait to get it! The dealer charged me about €100 for the arm rest during the negotiation so I am not mad at all.

    The blue on the Mirage looks sharp! It's good to hear the Mirage did well compared to other small car offerings you tested out. Hope to hear more about much you are enjoying your new Mirage in the weeks/months to come! Congrats on the new car!

    Yea eh, my Mirage was my first new car too. I have always liked it's only been me ever driving my Mirage from day 1 new. New car smell, the whole deal is enjoyable.

    I hope the deal you made for your car was good for you, still not my business.

    Hello hello! No it's not the base model I couldn't cope with that. It's the Active special edition so has air con and electric windows, central locking and radio and what not!

    My base model came with airconditioning, electric windows, central locking and radio as standard in 2014, and it cost €7990 then.
