Supercar looks without the price tag
The clutch was slipping badly when I bought it (100,000km) since Japanese spec. part is less robust than UK equivalent.
Reversing lights switch on the 'box was broken during clutch replacement - flimsy connectors.
Passenger wiper mechanism is very badly worn.
Thermostat got jacked open at 108,000 km.
This car is great fun and deceptively fast.
Performance at low revs is labored, but really takes off when the variable induction system kicks in between 5000 and 6000 rpm.
Handling is good, but an increase in front grip would reduce the annoying understeer.
Currently poor number of tuning products available directly in the UK, but is getting better by the day.
Exhaust note is throaty without being intrusive.
The T-bar roof makes it a real head turner on a sunny day.
Seating position is very comfortable, even for someone 6'4" like myself, with a gorgeous short throw gear change.
Pop up headlights are cool!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
