All things to all men
Centre arm rest latch broken.
Gear lever boot prematurely worn and loose.
Slight muffler rattle.
First the bad:
Speedometer is hard to read at a glance.
Trip computer fiddly to operate.
Hard to find parts either stock or performance.
Now the good:
The Bora is a real stealth bomber - looks ordinary but goes like a rocket. Quick enough off the line, but it's around corners where it really shines. The grip is simply amazing, and the car rounds bends at ridiculous speeds so calmly you forget that most other cars would be a smoldering wreck in the same situation.
Power and torque everywhere. Very smooth power delivery but just enough of a tail-pipe rasp to keep your right foot buried.
Superb leather seats, nice sounding stereo. Even the fuel economy isn't too bad!
Luxury + Performance + Handling + Reliability = Bora V6.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
