Wouls Be Awesome If It Was Manual — It's fully sick mate, gold-plated turbo, 28 sub-woofers, cut springs....perfect for lapping maccas carparks lol nah she's a good car, motor goes well, comfortable to drive, looks good from the outside....at night.....from far away lol pity about the auto box and the fact that the interior is falling apart....

Pros: Its not gutless

Cons: Its automatic
