This car is amazing. The amount of power from this little 4 banger is enough to make that Mustang look at you twice.
My favorite part about this car is the style. As most cars get older, their appearance fades with time. This is not the case for the supercharged Mk1. The raised deck lid adds a more sinister look, not just flat like the N/A model, and the 17 inch rims I have on low profile tires, make the car appear much lower and stanced than the mk2s. It holds up with the new "boxy" styles of newer cars.
Also, this car is very quiet until you mash on the gas, and the supercharger kicks in.
I love this car. 23 years old, and the paint still looks good, no rust, and the rebuilt 4AGZE is still running strong.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
