What do you think?



  1. How is the performance? Every says its not fast but it is really fun to drive.

  2. Its one of the last few affrodable driver’s car…

    • Well its overpriced here, around 130k. And i would say its a lil more than easily affordable. You have a lot of drivers cars at that price. I would go for a VW scirocco any day.

    • With that money I would choose the Civic type-R.

    • The Type-R is a gud car, but its unbearably unconfortable in normal driving and highly impractical. Also it doesnt have the class and build quality compared to the scirocco. But then its a lil cheaper… So i guess its about choice! 😉

    • May be when I got to drive one I went totally crazy and never knew about the bad comfort. 🙂

  3. nothing is special about this car except the roof and the sound system.
    I used to have one before.
