    Default estate owners

    just wondered if anyone else considered to put some weight into the rear body to keep it stuck to the ground? or is ur boot always full of stuff, lol. i am also gettin the strut brace, which might help, but just thought that weight would help as the car feels much better when i have the dogs in the boot.....

    depends on which model it is. My "life" needs the suspension sorting, but the SRi one I had the other week was SOOOOO much better.

    I always have about 10-15 stone of weight in mine. Personally I find the estate handles better than the hatch did, none of the high speed "floating" feeling....

    People who have driven both often say the estate handles better, something to do with the longer floorpan.......

    No problems with mine at all, find it quite hard to break traction unless it's soaking wet

    I think my estate handles better than my hatch did !
    both Sri's, only difference now is the 19" wheels !
    the hatch was a more comfortable ride over bumps.
