Summary:

A rocket that's light on your pocket

Faults:

Starter, alternator, turbo's.

General Comments:

Considering I really abused this car, remarkably reliable. Being an inter-cooled version, it is extremely fast, standard HP is 185, this one has 205 and 260 lbs of torque compared to 208.

A different rear bumper from the standard 425, seems to give it a better side profile. Absolutely love it but cannot afford it anymore, so will be selling it once the turbo's are fixed. I am very sure I will regret that decision.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

General Comments:

Way too comfy, I could sleep for days in her!

Not lovely looking at first, but she does grow on you.

She treated me very well, stranded only once, just a bad ignition wire.

I do all repairs myself, and have done numerous performance additions.

Know what you're buying before you buy one though, it can be a nightmare, and find yourself a good mechanic or become one.

Like me. :)
