Excellent engine. Chassis built quality in doubt
I purchased this car last week. I was going to purchase a 120, but by the time I ticked all the option list, the 130 was a better buy.
The straight six 3 liter engine is very powerful, with the paddle shift on the steering wheel making gear changing very exciting. The engine note is louder than the 120, but it's bigger capacity, so it's expected.
I think the steering wheel feedback is too strong on the 130, sometimes you get steering kick when the road is not so good.
Overall I'm happy with the car, and with the dealer, but I'm very disappointed with windows squeaking after owning the car for one week. I am not sure of the cause - could be the motors for the electric windows. I am taking back to the dealer see what they say, but for the money I have paid, I am very surprised to see that windows squeaks.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
