The interiors feel good and I have gone in for a nice Pioneer music system that complements the Beat looks. Still need to add a few accessories and jazz it up a bit. The frontal view is a tad ugly, but on the whole I like the design and have grown to accept the bulky bonnet. I guess the roof rails and rear spoiler that I plan to add will make it look even nicer.
No, I have not checked the fuel mileage yet, its hardly done 500 Km; although that's almost the first question I get from most people. Nett, it looks like a good 'value for money', so far.
