Summary:

Excelent

Faults:

Gone wrong has nothing so far altough I had to fix all the things previous owners have ignored.

The car was destined for the scrapyard when a friend (previous owner) gave me the car for free.

Things I have fixed since are:

* Drive shaft (Reason for the scrapyard)

* Front brake hoses

* Handbrake cables (for MOT)

* New Brake fluid

* Oil & filter (always when you get a new car) now on fully synthetic 5/40

* Spark plugs

* Main sphere.

General Comments:

Seats are super comfortable.

Steering precise and lot's of feedback.

Engine pulls great and just keeps reeving higher and higher.

Car can look sad when neglected specially on the outside.

Interior is plastic, but when looked after not a problem.

Fun car a bit different and with all the 16V and other writing removed can surprise other drivers at times.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
