heres 1 comment >>> "Fast and furious, but high maintenance"
What things have gone wrong with the car?
Numerous tail & brake light replacements.

Front driver side spotlight would not turn off, disconnecting the lead from the spotlight was required.

Water pump blew at 120,000km.

Air-conditioning broke at 104,000km.

Passenger side back seat belt pre-tensioner broke.

Driver front seat foam falls constantly onto back floor.

Engine light switch broke, causing an expensive replacement.

Electrical problems, causing light to work then stop suddenly.

General comments?
The car's power is very good when running properly.

Very unreliable, although seriously addictive to drive.
