Faults:

Well.. I'm driving it extremely hard... (and when one car maintenance shop forgot to refill with oil after a turbo charger change, the engine got blown when reaching 7000 rpm). Otherwise the weak point is the inlet gaskets. I have blown 3 of them and I need to change it again.

General Comments:

I am very amazed with the cars performance on all road conditions (including ice), even though the suspension could be a little bit harder. It acts very well up to 234 (real) km/h. Another weak point is the brakes which seem to overheat when trying to get the car down from above 200km/h to zero and braking heavily. Only on a few moments I have felt that I needed some extra horsepower..

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
