Hi Guys,

My mate is thinking about buying this car, and without
knowing anything about it, and either does the internet
I was wondering if he should go for it.

He is only 20 and its his first car.

To me it sounds cheap and a whole of fun.

What do you guys think? Does it sound to cheap

Thanks

Yeah my mechanic bought one of these for his missus... has good pull on boost, was pretty much dead-even with my car before the blower went on. As chef mentioned, they like to change lanes on their own. Top car tho - interior not too shabby, plenty of room.
