Fast and pretty yet economical and reliable!


Rear callipers are starting to stick a little, but it's due for new pads anyway.

General Comments:

I'm wrapped, everything is functioning beautifully, and in excellent condition for 11 years of use.

Fantastic chassis/steering, a nice engine but it needs to be worked hard.... sometimes I miss the low down flexibility of my old 8v Golf.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
