customer feedback

2001 Mazda RX-7 Type R Bathurst

My 2001 FD RX-7 is still going great after 2 years or so and your service was excellent. The car arrived in almost immaculate condition even after quite some time stuck on various wharfs. I was expecting to have to get a bit of bodywork fixed up but it was almost spotless.

Toyota iQ and Aston Martin Cygnet

The Toyota iQ was a wildly ambitious attempt to re-engineer and rethink conventional car design to allow 4 passengers to travel in space, comfort and safety (9 airbags!), yet in a vehicle that is 3 metres long. The interior cabin is similar in size to other small cars yet the significantly reduced vehicle dimensions allow for easy city driving and parking, aided by an incredible 3.9m turning circle... for a car that's only 3m long itself! The iQ also achieves excellent fuel economy and emissions, with carbon dioxide levels at 99g/km, a figure which vastly out performs all global emissions standards milestones.

Active and passive safety features include Anti-lock Braking System with Brake Assist, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, a whopping 9 airbags, Steering assit Vehicle Stabilicy Control (S-VSC), and Traction Control. The nine airbags include dual front airbags (twin chamber passenger airbag), driver's knee airbag, passenger side seat cushion airbag which restrains hip movement, two side impact airbags, two curtain shield airbagas, and a rear window airbag (a world first). All of this combines to give the iQ an NCAP 5 star rating.

Natural competitors to the iQ would be the Smart Car or Volkswagen Up!, however the iQ's TARDIS like properties being bigger on the inside and smaller on the outside than those vehicles give it the edge, and the build quality and features are far higher.

Aston Martin Cygnet

How about an iQ with the timeless Aston Martin marque and luxury build quality to match? The Aston Martin Cygnet is the small city run around car for the luxury car buyer, the primary market at time of release was for Aston Martin owners to have a car that's easy to park and drama free in the city when your V12 Vanquish is too big to get around tight city streets or when you don't want to deal with the ubiquitous onlookers all gawking at your exotic super car. At it's heart the Aston Martin Cygnet is basically a Toyota iQ with different styling, a hand crafted interior, and the all important Aston Martin badge on the front.

While the body styling is different on the Cygnet to the iQ with a more refined and Aston Martin-like appearance, it's the interior that really sets this car apart from it's little brother Toyota. Soft leather, hand stitching, and aluminium detailing all combine to make the interior a very large leap ahead from the interior of the iQ, with indeed no car in this class coming even close to the same levels of luxury inside.
