Forget it. A 1.6 carburetor model is much better to drive
I bought the car knowing of a fault which three garages were unable to repair - The car would randomly stall or would not start. It only cost me time to fix it - it is possible to read fault codes on these models without any tools. It said the Crank sensor was disconnected, but it tested correctly. There was a poor solder connection in the E.C.U.
I never liked driving this car. I got it because I could not refuse it at the price asked.
Being used to BMW cars with long accelerator pedal tavel, I found that the car drove "like a go-kart" with almost an on-off throttle. It was quick, but there was no refinement. This car was very tiring to drive long distances.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
