Summary:

A lot of sports car for the price

Faults:

Nothing major, but it had to have a new door gasket due to loads of wind noise.

General Comments:

Dear me. This car eats hot hatches for breakfast and spits out the bits it doesn't like. It has to be the most fun I have had outside of the bedroom.

A word of warning, corner too quick and you WILL lose the front end. Remember it is front wheel drive and it will bite back at any loss of concentration.

Your car spits out hot hatches? My 96 FTO GPX doesn't... find they go just as well as it to be honest, well until they find a tree... Regardless, the FTO gets respect... a Saxo gets chav response!
