    It's neat until you try to slalom the bitch. It's like driving a milk truck.

    Awesome that the tyres improve the drive so much.

    Incidentally Evo said about the same thing, they rate the car once it's on good tyres.

    This Stoked you're enjoying this - I was fearing they wouldn't be appreciated. I've only sat in one so far. That and a lot of ewe-toob mileage

    To fully get the point of this car, you have to drive it, in anger, on a good, twisty, mountain pass road, with either only yourself in it or with a passenger who does not weight more than 150lb. Preferably on better tyres than the Primacys, but they'll do.

    If, on the other hand, you sit in traffic with it, or only do long, boring motorway/highway miles, then you run the risk (particularly in traffic) of noticing the horrific fake-aluminium plastic fascia all the way across the dashboard, and the fact that the sides of the dashboard are also pretty ugly. But when you're doing the aforementioned driving, all that is forgotten and forgiven.

    So you are saying it's like driving a 2000 ish American truck. Hideous when assessed from a standstill, but perfect when used as intended.

    Not exactly hideous, there are certainly worse places to be. It's just that the plastics are pretty horrific given the price that I paid in HK. It's more like a Corvette.
