Nice, nice, nice


None, apart from one thing :) The balance belt snapped as wasn't replaced at the time it was supposed to be; the timing belt and balancing belt must be changed together, as if any of them goes off - another engine will be needed as it breaks the valves.

General Comments:

This car is really quick, even with the two litre engine.

The seats were still in good shape with no major marks.

Some say that the interior looks dull, but I didn't think it was.

I really liked the front of the car as it looks like a shark?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
