Replaced the brakes two times.

This car is a very good car for a starting brand. Wehn I bought it, I got it for $1,700. It came with a 1.5i OHC multi-point fuel injected engine (which they used in Holden Camira's) and a 5 speed manual gear box.
Its looks turn people's heads when you're driving it.
It has a good drive, but 1st gear could be stretched out a little.
It has never broken down and is pretty reliable.
I've put a bit of money into it. EX-SPYDER rimz, CD-AUX-RADIO-MP3TUNER with remote, parcel case, dashboard mat and a pair of 350w speakers. I am planning on putting a new spray job on it cause of its reliability and its performance, and I am planning on upgrading the engine. Its 1.5i M-P fuel injected engine is pretty powerful for its class.
I have beaten a lot of cars with this car such as a Toyota Starlet, Proton Satria, Hyundai Excel, Mitsubishi Mirage. If you know how to drive these pocket rockets, they can go pretty fast and go at mad speeds as well. I can't wait to upgrade the engine, it will be a beast.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
