Got to say RIL77 has got a point. There are numerous good cases made here both for and against however.....
The wife will not be driving it, I am not 6' tall and (currently) do not have any back/arm strength or reach issues. Added to this, the only time I would be in the car with (future) nipper would be on my own and so therefore I could claim that it is the perfect family car!!!
Going to see one tomorrow and all being well bringing it home!!
you've already decided. welcome on board.
If your wife moans then start talking about getting a motorbike. Sports cars seem a much better, more sensible choice then
(from a 6ft, 200lb man with back problems - but i did run a Lotus Elan until the second kid arrived, by which time it definately wasn't practical!)
