A wolf in sheep's clothing, no wonder the traffic police used them
The exhaust system started to blow at the joint seals and the whole system (which I believe was the original) started to corrode.
I managed to save the catalytic converters (there are two) and replace the rest of the exhaust system at a cost of £330.
Both front tyres have needed replacing at a cost of £80 the pair, which was reasonable.
I believe they wear due to the weight of the front of the vehicle and power steering use while stationary.
This vehicle offers 204 BHP and a top speed of 150 MPH. 0-60 in 6.9 seconds.
It is a very powerful quick vehicle for £1200.
As an ex-police vehicle, it lacks air conditioning and other creature comforts, but most are gimmicks which could go wrong.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
