Expensive to maintain, but worth it!


Well, it's been living in a barn for several years so the all 4 spheres were flat (got new ones), rust is common, but nothing serious.

Oil filter and exhaust were also needed.

General Comments:

Love it, magic carpet ride, like the swirling lights it's not a gimmick, it's practical on small gravel roads that turn a lot.

Best front seats around, brakes are tricky - the hardest part in driving this car, and the gearbox and steering are really good.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
