Just had to put in a new battery, as the old one gave up after 10 years. Other than that it's been pretty reliable over the 2 years I've owned it. Looking forward to keeping it for a long time

I do sometimes wish for the 530's extra 35 horses though. I find myself thinking that my car's handling, with just a bit more power, would be perfect.
Exactly, the 16 or 17 inch wheels tie the hole car together but the winter setup is understandable.
