Gearbox began to whine @ about 65k (common I am told, and nothing to worry about), wheel bearing @ 70k (previous owner hit kerb!), window wiper linkage @ 67k, also handbrake cable snapped twice.
Fabulous car, will definitely have another, fast, refined and very frugal. Bring on RS2000's, RS Turbos and all GTI's all day long. The gearing is fantastic and long, the reliability is first class, I can't recommend them high enough.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
