A very underestimated car... ask any BMW, or Audi TT owner!
Radiator needed replacing, as a result it overheated, the cylinder head gasket blew, and the head needed re-skimming, valves needed re-grinding, £800 bill in total.
Front brake pads needed replacing.
Rear window got vandalised, new window fitted, it leaked, Autoglass needed 3 attempts to stop it leaking.
The car is very quick, a real wolf in sheeps clothing. The faults I have had with the car, are not really the car's fault, it overheated, and I never noticed,...big mistake!!
Having said that, I like it to drive, and £ for £, its one of the best value for money cars around, there are not that many and as a result, it is a future classic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
