Subject: Re: -- ok i've found a 9000 anniversary --

after an approx 70-80 mi. test drive, i gave up the idea of buying this vehicle due to the reasons : 1) vehicle has undergone a level 3+ tuning operation(maptun)..i did not like this : new upgraded turbo, brake discs, calipers etc.. 2) vehicle is too noisy inside..particularly when the turbo is in "vacuum", the noise is too high.. 3) A/C is working too noisy..comparable to those of early 70's american cars.. 4) the *appearance* of the vehicle is definitely spotless..service records etc, are all good..BUT it does not give the feeling of a modern car from 1997..rather, you feel like you're driving an early 70's GM..the dashboard, particularly the warning lights, are just awful.. 5) periodic maintenance interval is every 10K km..and thats too frequent.. 6) i drive 50K km/ the approx maintenance cost is 2 K USD / year..thats a little bit too high 7) price of the car is approx 13 K in USD..this, again, is a little bit too high for a 1997 car. thanks for all, who contributed to my inquiry al
