Summary:

Little devil

Faults:

The oxygen sensor went off at 6000.

The fuel indicator gets stuck, I had hard times with that, then when you re-connect the battery it comes back (that's what the dealer does also).

There are those disturbing sounds coming from all around, the quality of the parts are typically French.

General Comments:

The handling is perfect and even greater with my Bilsteins and Eibachs, I placed a strut brace which had no need also.

The stock 195/45/15 Michelin's are incredible..

It is slow on straights and most of my friends here have E36 M3's which upsets me in most ways, but with the moulded slicks on the race tracks I'm faster of course with their P-zeros.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The VTS is a kick ass car and it moves too! For the price that you get it at it's a bargain. My mate's have RS turbos, and it screams past them and leaves them at the lights. The reliability is good no problems as of yet, apart from it eats the old petrol. Overall a very good car.
