Best cheap hot hatch!
Had a problem with the inner CV joint falling apart!
The best car I've ever owned! When I stiffened up the suspension the thing handled like a dream with totally nautral handling, totally encouraging you to slide the car round any corner, and those Recaro's are priceless.
These cars are in a totally different league to those crappy XR2i's which I've also owned (briefly).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
