Summary:

Great looks, good handling

Faults:

Variator replaced twice.

Paint peeling on the front bumper.

Headlight replaced.

General Comments:

Nice car, fun to drive. Attracts lots of attention, as it is not so common in Netherlands. Distinct body shape, nice interior, good handling.

Even better with a Novitec Turbo conversion (200+ HP).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
