Catalytic converter collapsed after 40,000mls.
Only usual parts, tyres, etc.
Excellent fun to drive, with as much grip as I ever needed round corners and pretty quick in a straight line.
Bad side is the constant rattles and squeaks from the trim. After 12 months it drove me round the twist and I had to change it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
