All 4 discs had to be replaced.
Aerial seal leaking causing water to pour into the car when going round corners (thought this might have been the sunroof).
Alternator packed up at 70K miles (had to get it reconditioned due to cost).
Quick wee car especially when fitted with a K&N induction kit and a magnex exhaust (absolutely destroys Golf GTi's and the like).
Corners OK, but the suspension could/should be better.
Pick-up on motorways is most impressive, overtaking is fuss free, and the RSi will sit at 100mph+ without pushing the car too much (although this will eat the petrol in no time!!!)
Overall, a fun car to drive with the added bonus of the insurance not being crippling.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
