I've owned it now for over three years and it has served me unbelievably well. This car has been beaten pretty badly and it just comes back wanting more. Sure I've broken stuff but so far nothing to terribly hard to fix. It has some issues but they could be fixed if I could be bothered.

The car currently resides at friends house in the USA awaiting my return.
