General Comments:

The handling was really bad, the suspension was not "getting" all the power to the front wheels - result:too much wheel spin. Also, it wasn't stable at high speeds. As a result I performed some modifications in the form of stiffer springs (Eibach) and stiffer shocks - the car handles better than most normal cars. The only big minus is the poor isolation of the passenger cabin and maybe inadequate seat position.

The engine is really good. Consumption: 9l/100km.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
