    Yeh its manual. Umm Yeh both my VL's have been good on fuel. My old ****box auto was around 12l to 100kms. This one is a little bit better at around 10-11L to 100km. Im currently running it on premium and it wouldn't surprise me if its burning at around 9l to 100kms.

    Hahahaha about the colours... Well I had put pics of my car on calaisturbo and the second owner of this car (the one who sprayed it) stumbled across the pictures and made contact with me. The car was painted a candy pinky red colour. He told me that he took the doors off when spraying it when your supposed to leave them on when painting a car a candy colour. So the car doors were a darker colour to the body or something like that. So they made it the maroon colour and it has red glitter all through it when its in the sun. But in general it always looks a different colour depending on the light lol.

    And nope, I wont sell it :p. This car took me 12 months to find and its in very good condition. It will eventually be turbo.
