They are cool as, they look amazing and are cheap to run when compared to a Porsche or Ferrari or maserati! MJG uses his every day!!Paul has probably filled you in on all the details but all I can say is I love them to bits but sadly may have to sell up due to finances needed else where. But we will see.

They are indeed stunning cars. The biggest problem for me was the interior. It looked dated even when it was new, and the driving position annoyed me. The seat is too low without enough adjustment - and I'm 6'.

It was definitely built to a budget with cheap fasteners (one of my door striker pins snapped when I shut the door - luckily I was at home at the time!) dodgy electrics and no reference material. They suffer the typical A610 cutting out issue, perhaps even worse.

But on the plus side they have the best looking pop-up headlights EVER, go like the clappers, have ample boot space and did I mention they look stunning? I would be tempted again for the right money...
