Summary:

Unreal. Unparalleled. Unrivaled

Faults:

Oil injector failed at 55000km and had to be replaced. Had entire fluids changed at the same time (oil, transmission, brake, etc) and it cost $800AUD. This indicates that the car is a little above average to maintain.

General Comments:

This car is a complete dream to drive. It is stiff in all the right places, and the feedback you get through the steering wheel is unreal.

Prior to this car, I owned and drove a 1987 Rx-7 Turbo that was mildly modified. The new Spirit-R out classes the last car hands down. It's faster, it handles better, it stops harder, and looks orgasmic.

:D.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
