Summary:

Nearly perfect

Faults:

Nothing much except the Autech Exhaust is a bit noisy for me. But this exhaust will be one of the most quiet one in the market for that size.

General Comments:

The best car I ever owned. Excellent performance and extremely low cost to run. The maintainence and petrol cost is amazingly low.

I was attracted by its Autech body kit. The feature is the top in its class. Excellent handling and comfortable.

Summary:

Great car when everything is working

Faults:

My VVL controller is faulty, as a result I am really very unhappy with the performance of the car. Things will hopefully improve as soon as the part arrives.

Engine mounts are not good, there is a lot of vibration when the car is started.

General Comments:

Great handling and looking car.

Sadly very little information about available mods and tuning info.
