Hi,

Just spent the last couple of days driving a Grand C Max titanium 2 litre tdci. Came as a Hire car - I was somewhat gobsmacked [img]smileys/smiley3.gif[/img], but after 350 miles on a variety of roads (mostly motorway and dual carriageway but including a 50 mile cross country trek from Derby to Knutsford) I was left with a very positive impression.
It drives very well (especially on 18" alloys) but the tyres are 235/40 18 Michelin Primacy - hate to think how much they are to replace! Also made the car a bit fidgety on some motorway surfaces.
I liked the neat little touches, such as when reversing the radio is muted - but only when the parking sensors start beeping!
Didn't notice the size of the car when driving and I am not sure about the rear looks.

Enjoy! [img]smileys/smiley20.gif[/img]

Regards

Andy Thomas

You telling me you've just bought a 20K car without test driving one first? I hope it is good! Enjoy.[img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img]
