    Harvey's C30 D3

    Just got this as a daily motor, not going to do much to it .

    This is the way it was when I picked it up .





    The main point was the Mpg as I need to a fair number of miles over the next 18 months or so.
    D3 is a 5 pot 2L diesel with 150 bhp so it's a fun little car to drive.

    I was thinking about a T5 but facelift one with good trim level and a nice colour & miles 9k and above.
    I guess it's just a nice niche car now no longer make them.

    I missed this Harvey... probably as I posted my new C30 in Car Chat (oups)...

    Love the colour on your D3, I thought it was only for Polestar, really suits it! Envious on your economy too haha.

    I can just pretend is with the colour .
    I just think it's a fun little car to drive , Mpg was important but colour and engine / trim just had to have it .

    I was actually pleasantly surprised how well they drive, read plenty of motoring reviews that said they were a blunt tool, but I've driven plenty of alternatives and these seem harsh, maybe there were a host of decent handling related changes on the final revision?
