I tend to favour refinement

Maybe this should be a poll: I like anything round and cute unfortunately these are the desirable ones, I know Jean mentioned Edwin favored the ugly, surely these aren't the only criteria to float peoples boats?

Hmm, which is the most refined Microcar? That is tricky as it is not a judgement I had really thought about. In a way I fear that the refined Microcar is going to be the more popular types as they had the sales to become refined or offered more in the first place. To that extent the Japanese took the Microcar concept on into the K class stuff. The Honda and Metsibushi were both well sorted 350cc jobs, Not had a Subaru so cannot say.
