Good First Car Or Someone Who Needs A Runabout Or Work Car — This was one of the funnest cars i owned. The model I had was an SS model Performance wasn't the best but for a 1.5ltr twin carb it got up and went! The interior had the sport trim which included woodgrain trim dash,sports steering wheel,and an electric sunroof. Also had stereo and a tape player which was luxury stuff in it's day. Fuel economy was average, with the twin carbs on board it sucked the super fuel especially when the needed tuning nearly one a month. But if anything broke on it anybody with basic mechanical knowledge could fix it

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun sporty car with plenty of character

Cons: Little old now and ran on 'super'

This Was A Bland One — I bought this one when I had some issues with another car (I don't remember which, but it was probably the BMW 2002 or the Audi 200). A reliable little car, OK to drive but nothing to write home about. It did its job for a couple of years until it fiinally expired, on its way to the wrecking yard of all places.

Pros: Driveable and reliable.

Cons: Dull, bordering to boring

Good Looks, Good Handling Not That Much Poke By Vaughan

Own a Yellow SP20 version of he car. It's okay but it is a pain that it uses 95RON fuel. Great grip and brakes but there is a few reliability issues with the mini coils and the we've had the gearbox... Read More
