Summary:

For the Grin Factor, go get one!

Faults:

Will only start on 4 cylinders until choke is pushed in.

Badly fitted fuel pump was making petrol fumes leak into the car.

Fuel injector released itself on the first trip out, we limped home.

General Comments:

A real head turner.

Seriously uncomfortable in either seat.

Well worth every £ spent on her.

Named "Precious" when bought, now lovingly re-named "Wishing Well".

Huge amounts of fun, great club too.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

If your seats are uncomfortable, they are broken.

I know, I have owned 7. My current seats are also broken. That said, I have just acquired some new ones. I have driven lots of cars, and if the seats are in good nick, it should be one of the most comfortable you have driven. Also, keep the injection.
