A super-reliable super-banger
Clutch burned out at 107000km, probably due to previous owner's driving habits.
Driver's side seat will no longer flip forward.
It's a shame these are as rare as they are, they are great cars. This one is sort of a striped out version, but mechanically, it is easy to repair and nothing to be afraid of.
As far as performance, it does amazing things on a naturally aspirated 4 cylinder engine. It can play on the Autobahn at 180kmph (108 mph) without having to exceed 4000rpm.
Definitely a best buy, excellent economy, I can get about 600km (475mi) out of a tank of regular. Also, GTs laugh at whether; snow, rain, ice, they don't care (and the body seems to be refusing to rust)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
