Summary:

Cool

Faults:

It cost to me 150 eur's, and I think I have to change the radiator. The radiator Fan always work. We are in the summer, I know, but the water is always very warm, and today even the temperature light of the water turned on. I've changed a rubber "fol" from the right wheel.

General Comments:

I'm starting to like to drive this car, its cool, but the noise it makes is very high.
