A will-be-one-day classic!
Problems with compression, had to have the head rebuilt.
Replaced 3 water pumps in 12 months.
Problems with EFI computer, had to replace with a reconditioned component.
Exhaust leaks from extractors have cost quite a bit!
Car performs beautifully (provided theres no engine troubles), great looking car, not real quick off the mark, but quicker than the few carby model VK's I've driven!
Cost to run is a little high, it's my first car and I wouldn't recommend them to a younger person with limited cash flow... but... love the car!
Extractors and sports exhaust have made a huge difference to the quality of sound.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
