I want to let you know that its almost 1 year and so far the car is holding up very well, its almost 7000 km on the odo with 2 oil changes.
Absolutely Zero rattles (I did the rattle proofing when i bought the car by double sided tapes)
Its fun to drive in the city. On highways also it feels good, I however the shorter wheelbase does show its limitations over sudden dips on the road. Not too bad.
I have lubricated the engine bay with silicon spray, all the major joints including calipers, gear cables, transmission mounts etc - its not the fastest, but it is absolutely please and stress free to drive!
